Georg Jensen silver at Gallery 925

 

San Francisco's Gallery 925 offers a finely curated collection of pieces by Georg Jensen, fine antique and 20th century silver.

Owner Rachel Prater was introduced to Georg Jensen silver at the age of 11 when her mother took her to the Georg Jensen store on Madison Avenue in New York: 
“My vivid recollection was of being awestruck over the fantastic unique jewelry, modern sleek lines in silver with bold stones as well as the naturalistic designs of the Arts and Crafts era. Seeing the holloware with its "moonlight" glow just made my eyes glisten with joy. As we were leaving, my mother said, "This is not just silver to wear, use and enjoy: it is an art form, like fine sculpture." How right she was!”
