I cannot find the name of the company which uses a capital G overlaid with a capital J -- but the top of the J branches out to a Y. It is on a silver brooch of a dolphin. It is not listed in Rainwater's book. It couldn't be George Jensen. Any ideas?

The mark sounds so familiar, I can picture it in my head, but I can't seem to find it readily in the references I have checked so far. Can you supply photo of the mark and the piece? It might help jog the old memory cells.

Found it! The mark is indeed that of Georg Jensen, in fact one of the earlier marks. Depending on which of the two below it matches, it is either from 1904 to 1908 or 1909 to 1914. My source for these marks is the catalog of the Jensen exhibition at the Renwick Gallery of the National Collection of Fine Arts at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC in 1980.

I just found it too, in Art Nouveau & Art Deco Silver by Annelies Krekel-Aalberse.
