John Cotton Dana, director of the Newark Museum, was first among museum directors to launch, in 1909, a series of exhibitions of modern European design. He acquired this pitcher from Georg Jensen’s 57th Street shop in New York in 1923. The smooth surface and handcrafted look of Danish silver appealed to traditionalists and modernists alike.
