About Georg Jensen Silver Designer Kristian Mohl-Hansen

Born in 1876, Kristian Mohl-Hansen was a diverse artist who influenced early and mid-1900 Danish designs. Having studied art formally, more specifically painting, in his formative years, Mohl-Hansen worked as a freelance artist in diverse areas, including textiles and jewelry. According to "Georg Jensen Jewelry," by Anscombe, Gelfer-Jorgensen, Greenbaum, and Soro, Yale University Press, 2005, Mohl-Hansen never worked directly for the Georg Jensen Company. Instead, he was paid for his sketches, which Georg Jensen transformed into fine silver jewelry. Kristian Mohl-Hansen is the designer for one of Georg Jensen's most well-known designs that depicts the side view of a dove surrounded by a round wreath. Mr. Mohl-Hansen passed away in 1962.
