Harald Nielsen (1892-1977) was Georg Jensen's brother-in-law. He started as an apprentice in 1909 and worked his way up in the company to artistic director from 1958-62. He interpreted Jensen's and Rohde's designs into precise drawings for the silversmiths to work from. Following Georg Jensen’s death in 1935, Nielsen recruited talented designers and silversmiths to continue the high quality work for which the Georg Jensen company is famous. Nielsen also designed many pieces of jewellery and hollow-ware.

Georg Jensen are world renowned Danish makers of the finest quality jewellery and other items. They were named after their founder (1866-1935) and were established in Denmark in 1904. They were leading designers in the Art Nouveau period in the early Twentieth Century and later adapted their style to the fashions of the day. After World War 2 they adopted a more modernist style and worked with a number of leading designers many of whom went on to great acclaim as pioneers of the modern Scandinavian style.
