JH Tee Antiques is pleased to offer a fine selection of antique and vintage Poul Petersen silver for sale.

According to his family history, Carl Poul Petersen was apprenticed at George Jensen in Denmark before emigrating to Canada with his wife Inger Jensen in 1929. He worked intermittently at Henry Birks and Sons in Montreal until 1944, but he also set up a studio to do commission work in the late thirties. Petersen opened his permanent studio in 1944 with his three sons Arno, Ole, and John Paul, and registered his company, C.P. Petersen & Sons, in 1946.

Unlike his rivals at Birks, Petersen’s production included a lot of hand work and his designs were inspired by the naturalistic forms of Danish silver particularly those designs by Georg Jensen and Johan Rhode. He produced eleven flatware patterns, an extensive range of hollowware, silver and gold jewellery and a line of Judaica. Petersen’s work is by far the most collectible of all the 20th-century Canadian Silversmiths.

C.P. Petersen & Sons was in business until 1979 but the majority of their domestic silver was produced in the fifties and sixties. Petersen is perhaps most famous for his work on behalf of the National Hockey League. He was commissioned to reproduce the Stanley Cup in 1962 and also to make the Hart Memorial Trophy, the Conn Smythe Trophy and the William Masterton Memorial Trophy.
