127 Piece Brass Cutlery Set
An incredibly large dining set of Scanline cutlery designed by Sigvard Bernadotte. Mix of stamped and unstamped.
This collection contains some very rare designs, notably the 'Mustard Spoons'.
Sigvard Bernadotte (1907-2002), born Count of Wisborg and known in the vernacular as Price Sigvard of Sweden, Duke of Uppland; was second son of the Gustav VI Adolf. He was excluded from the line of succession in 1934, when he married a commoner and therefore turned his attention more forthrightly to industrial design.
Best known for designs for the Danish silversmiths, Georg Jensen, Prince Sigvard (His title from SE 1907-1935, LU 1951-2002) designed for a wide range of items for popular audiences, including plastic everyday pieces for the home. This cutlery set, designed for Scanline from 1960 till the end of the 1970s, perhaps represents his design ethos most powerfully - things incredibly beautiful yet robust enough for everyday use.
