Georg Jensen Silver ACORN Flatware Pattern

In 1915, Georg Jensen Silver began producing its most famous flatware pattern, Acorn, and it has become an artistic classic. These glossy sterling pieces feature weighty handles with flowing vertical lines, and are accented with a scalloped tip and pierced scroll design.

Acorn is an excellent example of applied art from the European Arts and Crafts movement of the early 1900s. Artists from this period relied less on neoclassical or historical styles and looked to nature for inspiration for their designs.

The Arts and Crafts movement is also very closely associated with the Art Nouveau style, which was characterized by the use of undulating lines and the influence of nature, and became known as the art of decadence!

Abe Silverman's Antique Silver Shop enters 2006!

Happy new year, everyone! First, we'd like to thank all of our outstanding customers for their patronage over the last few years. We look forward to serving you again in 2006!

We have just finished removing all of the "sold" items in our shop, which came fast and furious over the last two months. We will be adding more antique quadruple silverplate and silver items as the weeks go by. We'll also be adding more manufacturers to our Silver Manufacturers pages, which we hope has become a valuable resource for each of you. Best wishes to all for 2006!

Abe & staff
