A sterling silver and stainless steel carving set in “Pyramid” pattern
Copenhagen circa 1950 by Georg Jensen
A carving set in “Pyramid” pattern, designed by Harald Nielsen, 1926. Executed by Georg Jensen silversmithy circa 1950.
The blade of the knife and the prong of the fork made of stainless steel, the handle made of sterling silver. Excellent condition without monogram or other kind of personal engraving, perfectly polished so as new. This carving set is the no longer produced variety with the fold-out support to the back of the fork and the slightly circed blade of the knife.
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. While the cutlery was first produced in 830 grade silver, it gained increasing international popularity as silverware for the haute volee in the beginning 1930ies and was therefore produced exclusively in sterling silver from around 1930. 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, but production of different types was gradually discontinued after the Second World War. This includes these asparagus tongs as well. 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.
