HENRY PILSTRUP(1890 - 1967)

Henry Pilstrup was an apprentice under Georg Jensen in the early days of the shop, starting in 1904, when he was 14 years old. He worked his way up quickly, executing a large part of the jewelry. Between 1918 and 1957, Henry Pilstrup had created many jewelry designs, being foreman of the respective workshop, making him one of the principal designers of earlier Jensen pieces.
