Silver Bangle by Harald Nielsen for George Jensen



A well designed silver bangle designed by Harald Nielsen ( 1892-1977) for the firm George Jensen.
Harald Nielsen was the younger brother of Georg Jensen’s third wife. He joined the Jensen firm and started as a chaser’s apprentice in 1909 and worked his way up to chief designer of the smithy school of apprentices. In 1954, he became the smithy director and in 1958 he became artistic director of the Company, a position he held until 1962.
He was Jensen’s closest colleague and his design style rejected ornamentation in favour of form and line. After Jensen died in 1935 Nielsen insured the continued high quality of the firm’s design and output by recruiting talented young silversmiths like Henning Koppel and training them according to the Jensen standards.
