Monumental Georg Jensen Henning Koppel Fish Dish #1026

This is a sterling silver Georg Jensen Fish Dish, design #1026 by Henning Koppel. This piece was acquired by Designmuseum Danmark (formerly Kunstindustrimuseet). Georg Jensen designed his large dish in 1919, Johan Rohde his fish platter with cover #335 in 1920 and Harald Nielsen’s Pyramid fish platter and cover #600 in 1930. Koppel followed his predecessors by designing this large domed fish platter in 1954.

This covered domed two-piece fish platter has no decoration as the form and shape are the decoration. The lack of ornamentation gives an organic effect and is an amazing source of reflection of light. The ends are turned up and resemble the mouth of a cod fish, very functional for lifting the cover off the dish.  Henning Koppel rejected Functionalism for form, his focus was on creating truly beautiful objects and this is one of his most monumental and beautiful pieces. Sensual and curvaceous, wonderfully organic. When launching the design in 1954 a Danish newspaper reporter asked Koppel if one would put a fish inside for use, Koppel replied, “Only a cod would ask that kind of question”.

Measures 26 ¾” in length x 12½” across and 6 5/8” in height (68cm x 32cm, 17cm). Weighs 193oz (5.48kg).
