Wine Goblet 532 is a good example of the simplicity of design and limited stylized ornamentation characteristic of Harald Nielsen’s design. Wine Cup 532 has hammer marks applied linking it with the preceding Art Nouveau style providing the elegant and taut design a somewhat traditional look.
Another popular Harald Nielsen design, The Pyramid tea and coffee set from 1930 does not carry the hammer marks which makes it more an Art Deco design than Wine Goblet 532.
The actual goblet, the base and the rod are raised and formed by the metal spinner on his spinning machine in several steps followed by heating – the goblet and the base from a flat round sheet of silver. The chaser applies the hammer marks on the base while the silversmith applies the hammer marks on the goblet. It is important that they attune the hammer marks to each other to give a harmonic impression.
The silversmith then gathers all the pieces including the rod (solid ring underneath the base) for assembly. The stem and the small piece with the beads just underneath the goblet are castings which the silversmith will first grind and polish to a perfect finish.
