Pott 2733 Flatware

c. 1975

by Carl Pott

In 1975, Pott 33 marks one of the last designs by Carl Pott, with iconic cutlery like Pott 22, and it contin­ues to be one of the most success­ful in the Pott flat­ware. At the time of its intro­duc­tion, the five-tined fork was a total inno­va­tion. Extend­ing the width of the fork allowed for an easier scoop­ing of sauces and vegeta­bles, such as peas. The fine grooves at the end of the handles give this flat­ware a special allure.

This 5 piece stain­less steel Pott 33 set includes a table spoon, table fork, salad fork, table knife with micro-serra­tion and tea spoon.

While Carl Pott coined the whimsical term “spoonery” for his flatware, the process of creating his seemingly effortless designs is calculated. Master craftsmen apply a century of accumulated wisdom and skill in the production process, which for those humble spoons include more than 30 steps—and more than 90 for knives, handmade of molybdenum and vanadium steel alloy, with handles of quartz-sand for an exceptional balance.

Pott’s father, Carl Hugo Pott, founded the eponymous workshop in 1904; three decades later, Pott transformed the steel specialists into true artisans, fashioning utensils of his own conception throughout the mid-20th Century. He also commissioned collections by fellow modernists including Hermann Gretsch, Paul Voss, and Josef Hoffmann, all equally ergonomic and elegant.

Third-generation craftsman Hannspeter Pott joined the fold in 1985, keeping the spirit alive while initiating bold collaborations with Ljubisa Misic, Ralph Krämer, Stefanie Hengel and others. When the legendary Siebel family bought the company in 2006, Pott had won some 700 global awards and earned spots in the permanent collection of institutions like the Museum of Modern Art.
