Classically elegant and substantial cufflinks by Harald Nielsen for Georg Jensen. Brother of Jensen’s third wife Johanne, Nielsen 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 jewellery, flatware and hollowware, many still in production. He introduced the stricter,more streamlined forms of Art Deco in the 1920s. After Georg Jensen’s death in 1935, Nielsen became the artistic leader of the company. These elegant cufflinks were designed in the 1920s, and were produced for many decades as well as being relaunched in the 2000s as part of the Heritage collection.
