What every modernist household needs: herring servers!
Two dishes and serving spoons in the original box. The celluloid top of one box is missing. I'm still at a loss about who designed these early pieces for Stelton.
Stellan + Carton became Stelton in 1960.
Niels Stellan Høm and Carton Madelaire met in the army and began a trading company. They linked up with a firm called Danish Stainlessnin Fårevejle, Denmark and manufactured a gravy boat that sold like hot cakes in the US in the early sixties. An early administrator/designer was Peter Holmblad, whose step-father was Arne Jacobsen. Holmblad joined the company in 1963, I think, as Export Manager. Arne's designs date from 1967, the famous Cylinda-Line.
The forks are marked "Denmark / stainless"
The dishes are marked "stelton / Denmark / stainless / 18/8"
