Fantastic pair salt cellars, Danish made in 1920 by Evald Nielsen . Evald Nielsen was apprenticed to the Copenhagen goldsmith A.Fleron in 1893 to make flatware,but instead of working on flatware became a chaser and engraver. He was awarded a travel grant and in 1903 left his wife and family for the life of a journey man traveling first to Germany and then to Paris.During his travels jewellery design was taking on a new development.Although his later work was typical of the Danish Skonvirke style his early work was inspired by contemporary German jewellery. Evald returned home in 1905 to start his own business, he was very successful and in 1907 he was able to buy a whole workshop. .Evald jewellery was selling so well all over Norway, Denmark, and Sweden that it was put on a par with Jensen and his collaboration with S.L.Jacobson gave him the exclusive rights to sell his work in Denmark.Norway, and Sweden. Many silversmiths tried to copy Evalds style with stones almost bursting out of a silver bud,but no one could master his style. He was chosen master of the goldsmiths guild in 1918 which he held until 1948. Evald Nielsen died in 1958.He always worked for himself and never worked for the company Georg Jensen.
