Mid-Century Finnish Flatware (Part Set)

R590.00

Today we have for sale a truly spectacular set of retro flatware! Designed in 1958 by silversmith Bertel Gardberg (1916–2007), this ‘Lion’ cutlery set was produced for the Finnish company, Hackman, who specialised in flatware. Hackman are still going strong today, and consider themselves “the leading Nordic specialist in cutlery design”.

In 2010, to mark the company’s 220th anniversary (yes, 220th!), they resumed production of their Lion cutlery – new a 24 piece set of Lion flatware sells for a very impressive 299 (R5500)! While our set is incomplete – there’s one full sized fork, and one small knife missing – there are still 40 pieces in total, which makes it a veritable steal!

Note: The knives and forks in this set are slightly more petite (and more chunky) than your average set of cutlery
