A very good gauge of silver and in exceptional presentation condition. The item shows no personal inscription or monogram and has been professionally polished.
This fine all silver cake knive is a very rare example in this pattern and condition and as from the early era of this design of additional rarity. Furthermore his type of knive has been produced only for a short time.
The “Pyramid” cutlery was designed in 1926 by Georg Jensen´s brother in law Harad Nielsen and is still a modern classic among Art Déco silver cutleries. First produced in 830 grade silver, it gained increasing international popularity as silverware for the haute volee in the early 1930ies which is why the production was switched to sterling silver. The demand of silverware in “Pyramid” is still unbroken today and the pattern is one of the most sought-after Georg Jensen silver cutleries.
In the first decades, the “Pyramid” silver cutlery had a large number of serving pieces as well as a wider selection of core cutlery and hollowware. After the Second World War the production of different types of flatware was gradually discontinued, which also includes this all silver cake knife. The “Pyramid” pattern cutlery is still produced by Georg Jensen today in sterling silver to a significantly reduced number in variety and also in stainless steel, although no longer in Denmark but in Thailand.
