Carl Poul Petersen (Danish, 1895-1977) hand-hammered sterling silver pastry knife in Acorn pattern. Circa 1947. Size: 10 5/8 inches length. Weight: 4 troy ounces. Excellent condition with no monogram. Maker's stamp PP on reverse of handle, together with Canadian national sterling mark and words 'hand-made sterling.' Carl Petersen trained as an apprentice with Danish silversmith Georg Jensen, and married Jensen's daughter. In 1929, Petersen emigrated to Montreal, where he worked for Henry Birks and Sons, and then, in 1944, opened his own shop, which specialized in high quality hand-wrought sterling silver, much in the style of his mentor Georg Jensen. The shop closed in 1979, following Petersen's death in 1977.
