Description

Georg Jensen "Moonlight Grapes " Sterling Silver screw back earrings in design number 40. These earrings were designed by Harald Nielsen and were made to dangle with every movement of the head. These earrings are stamped with the marks Sterling, Denmark, Georg Jensen, N. Wendel, and the design number 40. The french screw backs are missing but are easily replaced. One with partial post still in hole. Condition as shown in pictures. Dimensions are an estimate. These earrings are still being sold today for $535.

History about the Moonlight Grapes: Harald Nielsen was the brother of Jensen’s third wife Johanne, and he joined the firm in 1909, aged 17. He helped to establish the Jensen style and the firm’s tradition for outstanding quality. In the 1920s he designed jewelry, flatware and hollowware, many still in production. There is a notable stylistic development during the course of this decade, which started with the naturalistic organic forms of the Danish Art Nouveau or Skønvirke, and ended with the stricter more streamlined forms of Art Deco. After Georg Jensen’s death in 1935, Nielsen became the artistic leader of the company. Nielsen’s most recognizable jewelry designs are the bunch of grapes brooch 217B and the matching earrings, 40. They have been in production on and of ever since their design in the early 1920s, and most recently the concept has been relaunched and rebranded as ‘Moonlight Grapes’ with a number of variations on the theme.
