Synopsis: This sumptuous collector's volume showcases, at actual size, over 600 objects and drawings from Cartier's vast archives-many for the first time. The text recounts how this collection of over 1,200 items, dating from the 1860s to the present, was formed; explains the antique jewelry market; and imparts the artistic genius that places Cartier among the world's premier jewelers. Devoted to fine jewelry, this book presents pieces that were designed for the Duchess of Windsor, Daisy Fellowes, and Barbara Hutton alongside the Maharadjah of Patiala's recently restored necklace that once contained the famous De Beers diamond. Fascinating stories and complete technical details present Cartier's most artful creations, from glittering tiaras to pieces from the famous "bestiary" of panthers, dragons, chimera, birds, and crocodiles, as well as rare brooches, necklaces, and bracelets.
With its lavish slipcase, over a dozen gatefolds, extensive documentation, illustrated chronology, and index, this book is a must for specialists in the decorative arts and jewelry, and a publishing event for the quality of its design and reproductions.
