About this Item

First edition, 4to, (312pp), Notes, Bibliography, Cartier family tree, Chronology, Index, b/w and color illustrations throughout, black cloth, embossed title to spine, black endpapers. Fine, unmarked hardcover. In Near Fine dustjacket with 2 small dings along front spine gutter. "Here, for the first time, is the authorized story of this legendary firm, told with the help of never-before-published photographs and working sketches. The author was given full access to Cartier's extensive archives. These include photographic plates dating back to the early 1900s and recording each creation in actual size. The personal sketchbooks of the Cartier family and of key designers, as well as the actual jewelry design books - many of which were, until recently, considered lost - were also made available. Jewelry of all kinds is included, along with the hardstone animals and objets de vertu that were influenced by the work of Faberge, the famous mystery clocks that are uniquely Cartier's, and dazzling Art Deco vanity cases, gold yo-yos, diamond belts, and the much-imitated Tank Watch. Fascinating tales reveal how the fate of the Hope Diamond was determined, and that of Marie Antoinette's diamond necklace, and how two strands of pearls were traded for the building that now houses Cartier's NY headquarters." - from the dj flap.
