A sterling silver pair of grape scissors #208 in “Pyramid” pattern,
Copenhagen 1926-27 by Georg Jensen
A very rare sterling silver pair of grape scissors #208 in “Pyramid” pattern, designed by Harald Nielsen, 1926. Executed by Georg Jensen silversmithy between 1926 and 1927.
Excellent, very well cared condition, the stainless steel blades renewed later. Rarely made silverware utensil, which is discontinued since many years. Due to its early hallmarks of additional rarity.
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 included this pair of grape scissors. 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.
