Copenhagen 1931 by Georg Jensen
A rare 830 grade silver pair of sugar tongs in “Pyramid” pattern, designed by Harald Nielsen, 1927. Executed by Georg Jensen silversmithy 1931.
Excellent condition without monogram or personal engravings, professionally fine polished.
The sugar tongs belong to the rare cutlery pieces in “Pyramid” pattern and are discontinued in production since the late 1930ies.
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 but in Thailand.
