Description

From the Belle Époque to the Sixties, jewellery from the Parisian company Lacloche Frères embellished over 4 generations of topped heads, together with Queen Victoria of Spain, the Duchess of Westminster, the kings of Greece and Siam, and Grace Kelly. Based in Paris in 1901 via 3 brothers, Lacloche Frères bought jewellery created via the most efficient Parisian workshops, together with Strauss Allard Meyer, Verger, Helluin-Matlinger, and Langlois, and used to be popular for its chic designs and delightful workmanship. Their tiaras, bracelets, pins, clocks, and girls’ equipment (vanities, cigarette instances) embodied the spirit of Artwork Nouveau and Artwork Deco, and are a few of their easiest-recognized items. That is the primary monograph to track the awesome historical past of the Lacloche circle of relatives industry, and comprises an atypical album of gouaches that recreates the 21 clocks and 63 items of knickknack from their award-successful sales space on the 1925 Paris Exhibition des Arts Décoratifs.
