Interesting story about the son of a polish immigrant in London with a shop in the East End and how the dexterity of a 14 years old boy and the original designs took them to open a shop in Bond Street and to eventually sell the business to Moussaieff in 1991. The pieces made by Jo Kutchinsky are unmistakable today for his rich and extravagant designs and highly valued by collectors.

TIP: Always check that the date of the piece is pre 90's and do not think that the little shop in Old Brompton Road that still has the family name sells the valued pieces of the original Jo, for some reason that I do not know, they have turned it into a cheap outlet!
