An easy way to date silver is by its hallmark. A company would change its hallmark every few years during its production timeline. This was for many reasons; Some of the reasons were to keep their marks from being reproduced or to date their product. In this article I have provided some George Jensen marks to help you date your silver items. I have also included some artist marks with the dates they were used.
How to date George Jensen Silver
1. Look at your piece of George Jensen silver. You will find a hallmark stamped somewhere on your silver piece. This mark is usually on the bottom of the piece. The mark can be found just about anywhere so if you do not find it on the bottom keep looking. I suggest using a 10x jewelers loop to make it easier to find a silver hallmark.
2. Find the picture below that looks like the mark on your piece of silver.
3. The date range for the silver hallmarks is located just below the pictures.
