Art Deco Swan Oil & Vinegar Stand by C. Fjerdingstad, Gallia for Christofle

About the Item

Swan-shaped silverplated oil and vinegar stand with two small Baccarat crystal bottles with canted corners and stoppers. Design by Christian Fjerdingstad (1891-1968) for Christofle, Gallia Collection circa 1925. Stamped with Christofle and Gallia hallmarks under the base. This item is very rare, here in very good condition. More than an Oil & Vinegard stand, a true jewel to enhance your table with its unique design ! Christian Fjerdingstad (1891-1968) He was born in Danemark in 1891 and first worked as a silversmith in his country before arriving in France in 1915 after its demobilization. When he arrived, he met Fernand Léger and became friend with him, this last encouraged him to expose his work to the 1921 Salon d’Automne in Paris. He had a great success during this exhibition and then was hired by Christofle as the Head of Design, between 1924 and 1939. At the same time, he was continuing to create items under his own name. He was skilled to work both with pewter and silver and liked to mix them with other materials such as coral, Horn or amber. He was the creator of a new formal vocabulary and can be considered as one of the creators of the Art Deco style and a contributor to the renewal of early 20th century silverware.
