We are proud to offer such a luxurious panoply of lots including pieces of the finest jewelry, very rare watches and even reputed work of art. It is a sale marked by dashing collections of remarkable origins endowing the pieces with immesurable value.
In this way, the Fine Jewels part of the sale will include a superb collection of fine pieces of jewelry from Van Cleef & Arples, glorified by their Mystery Set. A rare collection from The House of Cartier dating back to the 19th century and the exceptional jewelry creations from the Designer Bulgari will also be honored. A few oustanding precious stones will enliven this part of the sale, among them the David Webb 51 and 52 cts emeralds, (old mine), a 64 cts Fabergé emerald cabochon, and even a magnificent 7,24 cts unheated Burma ruby. You must not miss the signature gold and diamond Boucheron necklace embellished with 8 certified “lucky charm” natural soft-water pearls.
The watches are not on the sidelines, as is our custom, and we have reserved for sale several superb pieces of fine watchmaking, which, we hope will delight our collectors. We are especially thrilled to offer a very rare collection of Cartier clocks from the 30s, and a Vacheron Constantin watch of the 40s – truly exceptional lots worthy of being museum pieces. We also will present a collection of chronographs of the 40s – 50s, with their extraordinary black and brown dials as well as some of the greatest names in Haute Horlogerie such as Rolex (Killy, antimagnetics…), Patek Philippe (Nautilus Worldtime…), Jaeger-LeCoultre (polris, Reverso…)…
Finally, we have the pleasure of presenting some superb works of art which have come from quite unprecedent origins. Among them a rare painting by Jean-Paul Riopelle, offered by the artist to its current owner at the occasion of his wedding, and a collection of paintingd by Sayed Haider Raza, belonging to a close friend of the artist (let's not forget that this artist lived only a few kilometers from the Principality of Monaco). We also urge you to see our limited edition litographs, numbered and signed by the famous comìntemporary artist Yue Minjun et Xiaogang Zhang.
We sincerly hope that this exceptional sale will meet your expectations.
