This is a Centerpiece Bowl. It was designed by Johan Rohde and manufactured by Georg Jensen Sølvsmedie. It is dated designed 1916, made ca. 1955 and we acquired it in 1984. Its medium is silver. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

From 1923 on, Georg Jensen had a New York shop promoting his simple, elegant forms. Featured in American museum and department store exhibitions during the 1920s, this model of bowl continued to be made for decades. Danish styling was so popular that American firms referenced Jensen’s expressive decoration in an effort to emulate its success.

It is credited Gift of Anonymous Donor.
