Georg Jensen's sterling silver partial tea service auctions for $10,000

Stefek's display cases were stuffed full of sparkling jewels and shining silver at its September 22 Fabulous Furniture, Silver and Fine Jewellery auction.

The auction featured fine jewellery including a stunning GIA certified 9.87-carat diamond, and several gorgeous pieces of Georg Jensen silver.

He trained as a sculptor at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, but soon became a silversmith. Jensen is today known for his artistry in design and his fine craftsmanship.

He left behind a remarkable collection of beautifully crafted Art Nouveau creations.
