Phillips Geneva is offering over 120 items from a private collection, including pieces by Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Lacloche Frères, and other noteworthy jewelers, in its Precious Art Deco Objects sale on Nov. 6.
“We are privileged to bring such a rare and comprehensive art deco collection to the market,” said Benoît Repellin, Phillips’ worldwide head of jewelry, in a statement. “This lovingly assembled collection pays homage to the discerning eye of the collector, who thoughtfully selected the finest jewelry houses and designers of the art deco period, capturing the diverse styles and trends of the era, from elaborate and bejeweled designs to those with clean lines and geometric forms by Jean Després and Raymond Templier.”
Leading the sale is a 1920s Tiffany & Co. desk clock that exemplifies the style, craftsmanship, and opulence of the art deco era. We take a closer look at this piece and other highlights from the sale below (estimates given in U.S. dollars and Swiss francs, CHF).
