Christian Fjerdingstad (1891-1968) was a Danish silversmith.
From 1925, Fjerdingstad worked as a designer at the famous silversmith Christofle. This Danish artist is considered an innovator of gold and silversmithing in the 20th century and one of the founders of the Art Deco style in this field. He is an exceptional creator who defies epochs, fashions and styles. An exhibition dedicated to him was held from May to September 1999 at the Musée d'art et d'histoire Louis-Senlecq in L'Isle-Adam, France, and in 1999 at the Museet pa Koldinghus in Kolding, Denmark.
A version of this Art Deco tea set was originally designed by Christian Fjerdingstad for Christofle in 1930 and used in the ultimate setting of Deco luxury - the great French ocean liner Normandie.
