A Danish modernist deco silver tea set by Frantz Hingelberg. Hingelberg is famous for collaborating with Svend Weihrauch, a designer who previously worked with Georg Jensen. Together they produced modernist, almost post-war style designs. This tea set perfectly captures their take on the deco style. An exceptionally heavy gauge of silver and in excellent condition.
