A set of six all sterling silver butter knives in “Pyramid” pattern,
Copenhagen circa 1950 by Georg Jensen
Six Georg Jensen sterling silver butter knives in Pyramid pattern, designed by Harald Nielsen, 1926. Executed by Georg Jensen silversmithy circa 1950. The knives are in exceptional presentation condition. They show no personal inscription or monogram. Their blades are made in sterling silver as well.
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. 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.
