Showplace’s New York City Estate Auction will present an Etruscan-style bracelet for online bidding. The piece is set with round cabochon-cut rubies. For a time, Etruscan art illustrated disparate influences similar to those seen in Greek art. The Etruscan civilization was particularly known for its craftsmanship with gold. At the time, gold jewelry was popularly used as funerary objects. Mostly depicting mythological creatures, such as sphinxes and griffins, Etruscan pieces can be characterized by intricate patterns.
Collectors can also discover Bueche-Girod’s 18-karat yellow gold timepiece. Featuring a mechanical movement, the ladies’ dress watch has an oval tessellated dial. Bueche-Girod was a watchmaking company that was founded in 1947. It was well-known for creating innovative components such as the moon phase and plain calendar. Shortly after its inception, founder Vital Bueche began producing watches for Cartier and Bulova. Also available in the sale is a crystal chandelier and ormolu side table in the style of Louis XVI.
