Evald Nielsen was a Danish silversmith and long-standing master of the Goldsmith's Guild of Copenhagen and one of the leading men behind the organizing of the Danish gold- and silversmiths. He sold his silver across Europe and from the 1930s onwards Americans were frequent customers. Today his works are highly appreciated by collectors in the two countries. Throughout his whole life Evald Nielsen was characterized by his wholehearted holding on to skilful craftsmanship and excellent quality. To him the fully trained craftsman was the one and only to design and create. "The professional skill and knowledge of the trade has always been essential in preserving the confidence between the goldsmith and the costumers," he wrote.
