The Montreal Museum of Art is hosting an exhibition of the works of Carl Poul Petersen (1895-1977). The Montreal silversmith's handcrafted silver evokes comparison to the works of Georg Jensen with whom Petersen apprenticed. The exhibition runs from February 13 to April 13, 2003.

Thanks so much for making me aware of the Carl Poul Petersen Exhibit at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. I immediately ordered & just today received their beautiful catalogue showing the most gorgeous and artistic silver items which were produced by Petersen.

verwald, do you think you can give us a summary or review of the catalog? For instance, what types of silver wares are pictured? I'm curious, as I haven't been able to find the catalog to examine in person.

Quoting from the catalogue - "This exhibition was conceived by Gloria Lesser who has been carrying out research into twentieth-century Canadian decorative arts for many years".

Ms Lesser writes an excellent in depth biography about Petersen - his early career & training, emigration to Canada, setting up a permanent Studio, the legacy of Petersen & Sons, all above with photos.

Pictures of Petersen Sterling Silver items:
Compotes, Pair of Candelabra, Flatware, 5pc Tea & Coffee Set with Tray, Ass'd boxes with 3D animal figures (beetles, beavers & Lily Pads, letter opener with grasshopper handle), Assorted Jewelery, Liturgical & Jewish Ritual Silver, Presentation Silverware etc.

This will probably be of great interest & enjoyment to all collectors of C.P.Petersen silver.

Thanks for the summary, it's just what I wanted. It sounds like a great reference I'll have to get (the bug motif silver was the clincher).
