Lot 90


A 'Magnolie' or 'Blossom' coffee and hot chocolate pot

Georg Jensen


Of ovoid form, each raised on three toad feet and designed with stylised magnolia blossom cover, designed 1905, made circa 1930, makers marks (different) and model number 2B to undersides, London import marks, 18cm high, total weight approx. 26.4ozt (2)



Georg Jensen’s very first tea and coffee set takes a number of figures from nature and combines them into a new organic form. They are low and stout, with toad’s feet and a magnolia blossom on to covers. This merging of elements was typical of Georg Jensen’s work with flora and fauna.The flower bud was inspired by Japanese art, which uses the magnolia bud as a symbol of the month of May. The toad is also known in Japan and is a symbol of luck. (Georg Jensen website)
