Item number: 58296

A rare 830 grade silver sugar tong in “Butterfly” pattern,
Copenhagen 1918

The front side and the rounded end with a subtle martelé, the spreading stem adorned with a butterfly, the tips terminating into bird claws.
Rare sugar tong in “Butterfly” pattern in excellent condition. The “Butterfly” cutlery was produced in small quantities only, also by Frigast and is today one of the most sought-after cutleries of the Art Nouveau period. This is not least because neither the designer nor the first silversmith of the butterfly cutlery can be clearly identified. The hammered surface as well as the butterfly pattern are in excellent condition and not blind polished in any way. Without monogram.
