This fabulous 'Splash' bracelet is arguably the most iconic design by Henning Koppel for Georg Jensen! Designed in 1946, this bracelet is the earlier version — #88 — later versions are numbered 88A and 88B. It comprises six freeform links with total length of c 20cm and width of up to c 4.5 cm. Despite this, because of the thickness of the links and the style of fastener, it is suitable for a wrist size of approximately 17 cm.

This bracelet weighs 99g and is stamped as Sterling silver. It bears the Georg Jensen logo for post-1945, model number 88, 925S Denmark and the designer's initials 'HK'. 

Excellent used condition, with light surface marks commensurate with age.

Card payments accepted.

Georg Jensen are world renowned Danish makers of the finest quality jewellery and other items. They were named after their founder (1866-1935) and were established in Denmark in 1904. They were leading designers in the Art Nouveau period in the early Twentieth Century and later adapted their style to the fashions of the day. After World War 2 they adopted a more modernist style and worked with a number of leading designers many of whom went on to great acclaim as pioneers of the modern Scandinavian style.

Henning Koppel (1918-81) was a versatile Danish artist and designer who produced some of the most famous modern designs in Scandinavian jewellery for Georg Jensen in the 1940s and 1950s. His fluid, serpentine shapes and freeforms links are some of the most recognisable examples of modernist jewellery design.
