|Flemming Eskildsen was born in 1936 and trained as a silversmith at Georg Jensen's firm, where he received a bronze medal for his talents. From 1958 he was employed at the company's graphic studio, of which he became the head in 1962.|
Since 1960, Eskildsen has been the designer of many highly valued jewelry pieces and design products for Georg Jensen and for the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Manufactory.
Flemming Eskildsen's hollow and tableware porcelain designs are nothing less than a revival of the classic Georg Jensen ideals. The "Magnolia Classic" porcelain dinner set pattern is inspired by the round, friendly shape of the "Magnolia" hollowware and cutlery from the classic Georg Jensen period.
The characteristic Eskildsen pattern contrasts elegantly with the lustrous, shiny porcelain – like a meadow of flower buds. A simple curve flows through all the pieces in the pattern, from the gently waved border of the plate to the rounded profile of the serving dishes.

With a history that spans more than 100 years, the Georg Jensen brand represents quality craftsmanship and timeless aesthetic design, producing lifestyle products ranging from hollowware to watches, jewellery and home products.
The philosophy of Georg Jensen himself was to create democratic designs possessing both functionality and beauty. His artisanal skill and artistic talent combined with his continuous ability to identify and support design talent was the foundation on which he built Georg Jensen in Copenhagen in 1904.
Georg Jensen’s style embraced the Art Nouveau lines of the day but injected them with a distinctive vigour that continues to resonate today. Serene flowing forms are enriched by exquisitely sculpted ornamentation and his stylised bouquets of flowers and lush bunches of grapes reflect his sensual delight in nature. Our most important task is to leverage the ideas and principles of the master himself and translate these into the design of the present day.
The Georg Jensen brand is based on a number of shared values such as integrity, authenticity and Danish design. All resonating the Scandinavian values - the simplicity of life, the Nordic light, clean water and fresh air – and all capsulised in the Georg Jensen Vision, Mission and Values. Respecting our DNA and our values it is both our obligation and our opportunity to run a profitable business providing products relevant to the consumer of today.
