A rare large sterling silver cake server in “Pyramid” pattern
Copenhagen post 1945 by Georg Jensen
A large Georg Jensen sterling silver cake server in “Pyramid” pattern, designed by Harald Nielsen, 1926. Executed by Georg Jensen silversmithy post 1945. In excellent condition without monograms or inscriptions.
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, the cutlery gained increasing international popularity as silverware for the haute volee in the beginning 1930ies. That´s why it has been produced exclusively in sterling silver from around 1930. The demand of silverware in “Pyramid” is unbroken even 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 this cake server 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.
