Two Cased Georg Jensen "Acorn" Silver Salt Sets

Lot 0554
Pair of Cased Georg Jensen "Acorn" Sterling Silver Salt Cellar Sets

the pattern designed in 1915 by Johan Rohde (1856-1935), Copenhagen, including eight salt cellars with cobalt enamel interiors, dia. 1-5/8", l. 2-1/5", and eight salt spoons, l. 2-3/8", presented in the original pair of turquoise velvet- and cream satin-lined cases.
7.10 total t. oz. (including enamel)


In generally quite good condition. About half the spoon bowls have a frosty patina from use and polishing, with the rest still bright. Some very small scattered dark salt spotting, easily removable and with no evidence of pitting. Enamel excellent; no chips or cracks. The bowls all fully marked with the pelleted post-war Jensen mark, with "Dessin JR" for Johan Rohde, with "Denmark Sterling" and the pattern number "62"; the spoons with the pelleted Jensen mark and "Denmark Sterling". The cases in good shape, with a couple of stray, short ink pen marks on the interior satin, but no tears, rips or worn spots. The exterior has a few pale pink chalky marks, presumably silver polish.
