Title  Vintage Danish signed George Jensen Yin Yang pendant


Width 53mm

Thickness 3 mm

Length of original chain 650mm

Weight 65 grams


A genuine George Jensen solid pewter pendant .

This vintage Pewter pendant design # 295 is made in Denmark signed Jorgen Jensen. The piece is in good condition, and probably dated circa 60s.

Jorgen Jensen was another well-known Danish pewter artist/craftsman. Born in 1931, the son of a realtor, he’s often mistaken for the son of silversmith Georg Jensen, who had the same name. For a short time, he worked at Georg Jensen's workshop, but moved first to Montreal then Stockholm before setting up a studio from 1960-1965 in the basement of a building his father owned in Copenhagen. Jensen liked to work in pewter because he found it pliable and affordable. Unlike the other Jensens, he created simple, fine jewelry in pewter.

"Yin and yang can be thought of as complementary (rather than opposing) forces that interact to form a dynamic system in which the whole is greater than the assembled parts" there is a little piece of Yin in every piece of yang and vice versa.

All pewter 1960s vintage including original chain.

Measurements: disc width 3mm think diameter 2"

A few surface scratches and minor dings appropriate for this vintage.
