Georg Jensen Bernadotte étagère
Sometimes it is true, when they say the food tastes better, if it looks great. .
The Bernadotte étagère lets you serve and enjoy your scones, finger sandwiches and other delights in impeccable style. Your afternoon tea is taken to another level with timeless Scandinavian design on the table.
The very first Bernadotte designs were released all the way back in 1931, inspired by the Functionalist movement. They were conceived by Swedish Prince Sigvard Bernadotte, who would go on to become one of the most successful and legendary collaborators in the history of Georg Jensen.
The Bernadotte étagère is inspired by the original designs of Sigvard Bernadotte, and it is made out of stainless steel and porcelain. The edges of the different plates are slightly raised to prevent any liquid to spill.

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.
