Georg Jensen Sterling Silver Acanthus Lunch Fork No 022. Measures 16.5 cm / 6 1/2"Designed in 1917 by Johan Rohde (1856 - 1935)
Johan Rohde was a graphic artist, painter, architect, designer and critic. In the 1880s, Rohde was an important artist in Germany and Denmark. He challenged the traditional ways of teaching at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and was a leader in the creation of the Free Exhibition, which aimed to show the work of artists whose work was not accepted.
He designed objects for everyday use - furniture, silverware and hollowware for his own home.
Rohde and Georg Jensen first met when Rohde commissioned Jensen to execute one of his corpus designs. When this was successful, they decided to continue their collaboration. They worked together for many years after.
