Details

‘The Swan’ is the nickname of Henning Koppel’s Pitcher 1052. To make the body of Pitcher 1052 the silversmith cuts out two identical flat pieces of silver which are then shaped i.e. raised by the same technique as the covered dish 1026. When the silversmith has gone through the long process of raising the silver, heating it often to ensure that it stays soft and flexible he continues to work on the surface with many different hammers to make it smooth. When the two halves have their final shape they are given a final press in a form to ensure a perfect fit. The edges of the two halves are grinded and carefully prepared for a perfect fit and they are then carefully soldered together. The top part which forms the spout and the top of the handle is formed from a separate flat piece of silver and then soldered on to the body. The handle is also made from a flat piece of silver, in other words it is also hollow. The bottom is the last part to be soldered on.
