The twentieth century at auction




Art Nouveau and Art Deco Jewelry by the best designers at Geneva auction with Christie’s  ♦︎
There are many vintage jewelry enthusiasts who are waiting for the grand auction opportunity to see closely pieces that have been closed in drawers and safes for decades. One of these occasions is November 13 in Geneva. Among the Magnificent Jewels from a European collection, there are on sale special Art Noveau and Art Deco pieces of particular beauty. Fine stuff, to collectors, for lovers of jewelery art. But they are also very precious pieces: the overall estimate of this collection exceeds 3 million euros.
The jewels are the result of a collection that has been completed in 30 years by a couple (especially her) who is passionate about this kind of piece, especially of the first half of the twentieth century. The names of the artists and jewelers in the collection are those found in the goldsmith’s history books: René Lalique (50 lots, a record), Henri Vever or Leopold Gautrait, or Georges Fouquet, Raymond Templier, Cartier, Van Cleef and Arpels: in all, 110 jewels. Among them is the collection of jewels signed by Lalique, a designer who has created his best and most important pieces of Art Nouveau and has become a myth that continues today. Federico Graglia
