Literature

Cf. Exhib. cat. Silber für die Welt aus Heilbronn. P. Bruckmann & Söhne (1805 - 1973), Heilbronn/Berlin/Solingen 2002 - 2003, Kornwestheim 2001, p. 90, fig. 14 & R. W. Sänger, Das Deutsche Silber-Besteck, Stuttgart 1991, p.136, fig. 22 for the original model (no. 3001 1/2) by Christiansen, in which the handle smoothly runs over into the blade or the fork instead of being composed of two seperate elements. The cutlery here offered for sale, with the elaborately decorated blades and forks, could be a more commercial -or especially commissioned- adaptation of the Christiansen design
