Carl Poul Petersen was born in Denmark in 1895 died in Montreal in 1977. He apprenticed with Georg Jensen between 1908 and 1913, and eventually became a Master Silversmith himself. He married Jensen's daughter, Inger, in 1922. Then they moved to Montreal, Canada in 1929 at the very start of the depression and was employed by Henry Birks & Son as their master goldsmith in 1932. Briefly independent (1937 to 1939) he returned to Birks in 1939. Five years later he left Birks, and started his own business, which remained in operation until 1975. He crafted jewellery, flatware, tea sets, serving pieces, bar sets, etc. They are all of very high quality, and are highly collectible.
