Georg Jensen Sterling Silver Compote No. 285A
Exceptionally rare Georg Jensen candy dish designed in 1918. On a stepped circular base, rising to a foliate openwork stem, the bowl formed as a stylized hand hammered shell with vine-shaped handle terminating in grape clusters.
The hallmarks are faint but legible.
This design was made in several sizes. We also have the large size, 285B available in stock.
A similar example can be seen in the book GEORG JENSEN HOLLOWARE, The Silver Fund Collection by David Taylor and Jason Laskey, pg. 126.
