Footnotes

  • Johan Rohde (1856 - 1935)

    Johan Rohde began designing products for Jensen in 1906. His designs have much in common with Jensen's own, both silversmiths' use the same oxidisation technique and their pieces bear characteristic hammer marks. However, Rohde's designs are highly stylised in comparison to Jensen's more natural Art Nouveau style.

    In 1913 Rohde committed to designing solely for Jensen. Many of his pieces were quintessentially modern and well ahead of their time; pitcher 432 was one such piece. Designed in 1920, Jensen believed the 432's design so advanced that it was held back from production until 1925. Since then, this pitcher has been admired for almost 90 years, demonstrating the enduring appeal of its design and its ability to transcend a century's worth of design.
