“Leave it to the Silver Fund to find this extraordinary collection with this number of Silver and Silver-gilt pieces, circa France 1925-1947”
The Silver Fund is the largest dealer worldwide in estate Georg Jensen silver. In addition to their comprehensive collection of Georg Jensen holloware, their inventory includes exceptional 20th century silver designed by Jean Puiforicat, William Spratling, Antonio Pineda and many other great 20th century designers.
Since 1996, they have sold more than $40 million worth of Georg Jensen silver to private clients around the world. They have helped build multiple large collections including the Rowler collection, the largest single collection ever to be sold at auction where it fetched $9.8 million in one session.
The Silver Fund has helped put together outstanding exhibitions, including “Georg Jensen Jewelry” at the Bard Graduate Center in New York City. The exhibition was the largest Georg Jensen jewelry retrospective ever presented. The Silver Fund collaborated with Susan Weber Soros, the founder and director of the center, at every stage of the exhibition. We also collaborated on the Georg Jensen exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 2007.
The Silver Fund has authored the definitive book on Georg Jensen Holloware—Holloware: The Silver Fund Collection. The book was the culmination of five years of research, writing and collaboration.
