1972 Michelsen Sterling Silver and Enamel Herald Angel Christmas Fork
Each of the designs relate to a Christmas theme and in fact, say "Julen" with the year on the reverse side (Julen is the Danish word for Christmas). A perfect way to celebrate and acknowledge each family member or to start a new tradition.
Generations can arrive at the celebratory feast and see themselves honored by a fork and spoon at their place setting! A great way to create memories. And what a delightful addition to the much anticipated dessert course! Coffee and pie or cake or pudding!
Marketed through the Jensen shops, this is the 1972 fork for the Christmas series by A. Michelsen, Denmark. It is gold wash on sterling silver with the design work done in enamel. This one is called "Herald" and it was designed by the well-known designer, Bjorn Wiinblad. Really nice design. The first photo is a closeup to show the details better - there is a tiny face done in guilloche enamels with the stylized wings above the haloed head. Clever and pleasing. The fork is done in shades of purple, while Its mate - the spoon - is done in shades of pink and it is available separately. Excellent condition.
Michelsen no longer produces or designs these sets. Irreplaceable!
