The upcoming Jewelry & Silver sale, presented by Elstob & Elstob, offers antique jewelry and signed pieces from Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels. Among the highlighted lots is a Cartier laque burgauté compact from 1925. The technique of applying pieces of seashells to lacquer originated in China during the Ming Dynasty before spreading to the Ryukyu Islands. Most of the lacquer used by Cartier Art Deco objects was likely made in on these islands. The available piece depicts a Chinese maiden and objects within an engraved and serrated border.
Another key lot is a Frank Muller Endurance 24 watch. Launched in 1995, the limited edition chronograph was created to mark Muller’s partnership with McLaren, the racecar builder. Endurance 24 indicates time over 24 hours instead of the traditional 12. Silverware, silver sculptures, and antique boxes will be offered as well. Interested collectors can explore the full listings and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
