Georg Jensen Bernadotte Egg Cup Set
Bring a touch of timeless elegance to your table with the Bernadotte egg cup set. Inspired by riffled lines from the Art Deco period of the 1930s, the Bernadotte collection was originally launched in 1938 and designed by Swedish Prince Sigvard Bernadotte.
He was heavily influenced by the functionalist movement, and his sleek and sparingly-decorated style modernised the world of silver while also placing him as one of the most successful Georg Jensen-collaborators ever.
The Bernadotte egg cup set is inspired by the original designs from Sigvard Bernadotte – and it is made out of stainless steel. It makes the perfect gift for any food and design aficionado, or even yourself.

Prince Sigvard Bernadotte (1907-2002) was trained at the Kungliga Konstakademien in Stockholm in 1929. The following year he saw the Stockholm exhibition of Gunnar Asplund, which marked the breakthrough of functionalism. This influenced Bernadotte’s own style and he incorporated the ideals of functional elegance into his design thenceforth. Shortly afterwards, Prince Sigvard Bernadotte and Georg Jensen began a long and fruitful cooperation, in which the new functionalism was at the centre of a more modern interpretation of the work of silver. The prince’s long affiliation with Georg Jensen represents another chapter in the rich history of Scandinavian design. His Bernadotte collection has been and continues to be a favourite for generations.
