Description from Carl Mertens
This cutlery set for 1 person contains:
- 1 x dinner fork Worpswede
- 1 x table knife hollow book Worpswede
- 1 x table spoon Worpswede
- 1 x teaspoon Worpswede
In the town of Worpswede, near Bremen, a painter’s colony was founded in 1889. It quickly grew into a home for innovative artists of Art Nouveau, Impressionism and Expressionism, and in the 1920s, built a bridge to the Bauhaus style. Inspired by this significant transition from traditional forms to modernity, Carl Mertens first created a cutlery collection in 1932 named the Northern German Artists’ Colony – creating a trendsetter. Over the years, Worpswede has become one of the most popular classics in the Solingen-based company. Even after 80 years, the table accessories continue to be modern. They come without any ornaments and fascinate by the special surface treatment “duotone”: the rounded, ergonomically shaped handles are frosted, while the blades, lugs and tines are polished. Worpswede – a timeless classic for sophisticated tables!
