A pair of sterling silver fish servers in “Pyramid” pattern,
Copenhagen 1933-44 by Georg Jensen
A rare large sterling silver pair of fish servers in “Pyramid” pattern, designed by Harald Nielsen, 1926. Executed by Georg Jensen silversmithy 1933-44.
These fish servers are the rare large version with subtle pierced and embossed fish detail to their front which is discontinued since many years. Excellent condition without monogram or other kind of personal engraving, perfectly polished.
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. This also includes these large fish servers. 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.
