Covered Fish Platter by Harald Nielsen

 circa 1940

Sterling silver. While discussing his design philosophy Nielsen once remarked, “The ornament must never dominate. It is subservient to the harmony of the whole and does not exist for its own sake. It can stress the quietness and simpleness of outline but must never distract from it. Seeing the thing in its wholeness and balancing ornament against plain surface is my basic principle in carrying further the spirit of Georg Jensen.” What more can be said about this fish dish?
