Mitra takes its name from the mitre, a bishop's headdress, the shape of which inspired the cutlery stems. Designed in 1941 by the sculptor Gundolph Albertus, Mitra's expression exudes functionalist new world minimalism coupled with a traditional finery of cutlery patterns of that era.
Mitra was the first steel cutlery produced by the Georg Jensen Silversmiths in response to the wartime shortage of silver. Gundolph Albertus strongly advocated continuing the craftsmanship traditions of the master, Georg Jensen. This spirit is manifested in Mitra, a handsome set in matte finish 18/8 stainless steel that withstands and deserves daily use.
