Just in at Gannon's Antiques Mall… A huge and fabulous antique sterling silver flatware set made by one of the foremost silversmiths of all time, Georg Jensen, in the elegant acanthus pattern which was designed by Johan Rhode in 1917.  
This incredible set features 13 sterling silver flatware pieces per guest with enough to serve 12 guests plus 22 serving pieces!

Over the decades, pieces have been added to make this a tremendous 178 piece set! Everything is in very good condition and there are no monograms on any pieces.
There are 3 varying Georg Jensen hallmarks.

This service for 12  is still stored in the original labled Georg Jensen custom fitted flatware keepsake trays. Obviously, it was passed down from a very wealthy estate. This is the first time it is available to the public since it was originally acquired! A true estate treasure!
We also acquired her family's beautiful S. Kirk & Son five piece sterling silver repousse tea set with the matching repoussé sterling silver tray and 24 sterling silver S. Kirk & Son matching repoussé goblets!
