The wide variation of items means that there is something for all price points -starting at the humble key rings and phone charms, all the way up to large ice buckets and cutlery sets.

There are special ranges designed and distributed for occasions, such as Christmas, as well as discontinued lines. The contemporary pieces are priced extremely competitively; one only has to look at well-known high-street retailers to see the drastic price differences.

Sale highlights come from the Bernadotte line. The result of collaboration between Prince Sigvard Bernadotte and Georg Jensen, the range that is still being sold today has its roots in the pre-war 1930s.

Bernadotte Thermo Jug

Lot 152 – Georg Jensen, Bernadotte, Thermo Jug, Chrome-plated stainless steel, designed by Sigvard Bernadotte.

The Legacy and Bloom ranges are instantly recognisable as Jensen, each with their own designs but both effortlessly cool additions to any stylish home. Start or add to an existing collection with simple pieces like oil and vinegar sets as well as serving bowls.
