Place Of Origin

Sigurd Persson (1914-2003) was a significant Swedish silversmith. Hhe emerged in the 1940s. Simplicity characterises his silver and designs for other metals. There are two main themes in his use of form—one organic, the other geometric. His hand-crafted tea and coffeepots, candlesticks, bracelets and rings have had a decisive influence on later Swedish silversmiths, even though he cannot be said to have created a school of followers.

Brief Description
Double vegetable dish, stainless steel, Sweden, 1984, designed by Sigurd Persson, made by Silver & Stål.
Physical Description
Each bowl is square with rounded corners and slightly curved sides which slope inward and merge in a shallow curve to a flat base. A narrow rim on two sides follows a slightly wider arc than the side of the bowl itself while at either end the handles are formed by a stepped, flared lip which describes two wide arcs that meet at adjacent corners of the bowl. In the closed position, one bowl forms a lid by being inverted and resting on the rim of the other. The flared handles are then at right angles to each other.
