Poul Petersen Four Piece Sterling Tea and Coffee Service
This set, made by the celebrated silversmith in Montreal, has much in common with the work of his father-in-law Georg Jensen. The teapot, of compressed spherical form, the coffee pot, sugar basin and milk jug, proclaim an essentially Art Deco aesthetic whilst paying homage to the naturalistic forms of Art Nouveau with an applied leafy motif.
