Is a contemporary take on the Tonnelet tea service.
Christian Fjerdingstad is recognized as one of the greatest Art Deco silversmith-designers, his collaboration with Christofle began in 1921 and lasted for 20 years. In this contemporary design, based on variations of the circle, the Art Deco heritage is unmistakable - and, just as Fjerdingstad loved to do, it combines silver beautifully with ebonized wood, its sleek lines and robust-yet-refined form focusing attention. Her novel design and lavish interiors led many to consider her the greatest of ocean liners. She held the "Blue Riband for the fastest transatlantic crossing at several points during her service career".
The luxurious interiors were designed in Art Deco and Streamline Moderne style. Drawings and photographs show a series of vast public rooms of great elegance. Teapot: L 8-1/4 x H 6-7/8 x D 2-1/4. Sugar Bowl: L 3-13/16 x H 4-3/8 x D 2-13/16. Creamer: L 6 x H 4-3/8 x D 2-13/16.
