Sigurd Persson Modern Swedish Silver

From the publisher: “Mr. Sigurd Persson belongs to the younger generation of Swedish silversmiths. Personally, he prefers calling himself a worker in precious metals and jewels. Through his exquisite, art-craft creations and audacious and even temperamental articles in the trade journal, he has made himself known and respected. His works are internationally well-known, having figured prominently in various exhibitions in various countries.
Modern Swedish Silver opens with a review of what has been achieved in the past, but, thereafter, completely concerns itself with modern developementswithin the realm of art-craft in proof metal. All the known silversmiths will be found here: from Erik Fleming and Wiven Nilsson, who gave new impulses to silversmithry in Sweden and down to the very youngest but also very promising artisans.”

Sigurd Persson Modern Swedish Silver is a fountain of knowledge of this silversmith pioneer of the Modern era aka Scandinavian Mid Century Modern.
