Antique Collectors Club. 2012. Folio original laminated boards with slipcase. With 250 colour illustrations. A near fine copy. First edition. "Success, wealth and privilege have many ways of manifesting themselves, not least through the purchase and display of beautiful jewels. Some of the greatest and most iconic pieces from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries are included in Celebrating Jewellery, by David Bennett and Daniela Mascetti. Every example is synonymous with style and luxury, from the formal tiaras, suites and ornaments of the Victorians through to the innovations of Belle Époque and Revivalism, to the geometric and linear designs of the Art Deco movement, and the bold, colourful jewels of the late twentieth century. Celebrating Jewellery also includes a number of the most famous jewels in history, such as the Cartier 'great cat' and flamingo jewels for the Duchess of Windsor, and other lavish and illustrious examples created for European royalty. This is a truly magnificent volume, which will provide lasting inspiration and pleasure to anyone with a love of the great jewels of the last two hundred years. The jewellers featured, in order of appearance, are: Gabriel Lemonnier, Mellerio dits Meller, Garrard of London, Chaumet, Vever, Lalique, Vever and Lalique (short collaboration), Boucheron, Castellani, Giuliano, Cartier (Cartier Paris and Cartier London), Marcus & Co, Van Cleef & Arpels, Lacloche Freres, Rene Boivin, J.E.
