When Daniel Swarovski started his jewelry and accessory brand, he intended to create “a diamond for everyone.” Today, the company is owned by the fifth generation of his family. Known for luxury jewelry and collectible figurines, Swarovski designers increasingly incorporate materials such as gold and marble into their works. Featured in the upcoming Estate Jewelry, Art, and Collectibles auction is a crystal and gold Chinese dragon figurine. The limited-edition Swarovski piece was crafted in 2009 and is accented with shades of red and green. The dragon rests on white marble, carved to invoke swirling clouds. Other Swarovski items available in this sale, offered by Kodner Galleries, include both clear and colored crystal elephants and wild horses.
Another key item is from Cartier. The brand’s Panthère wristwatch first appeared in 1914, patterned with onyx and diamonds. Available in this auction is a signed Panthère watch with diamonds, enamel, and 18-karat yellow gold. A Rolex Datejust watch with a pink dial will be presented as well. Made in 1997, this watch has diamond hour markers and a self-winding automatic movement.
Beyond the jewelry items, this auction also includes over 100 lots of fine and decorative art. Leading these are two watercolor and ink works by Hong Kong artist Leung Kui Ting. Active since the 1960s, Leung explores the intersection of traditional Chinese ink painting and Western artistry. The offered works are titled Beyond the Vision and Abstract Composition, respectively. Both are seal-signed by the artist. Explore the full catalog for this auction and register to bid on Bidsquare.
