MAUBOUSSIN Art Deco Diamond bracelet

This nice Art Deco diamond bracelet is a very good example of the best work of one of the greatest jewellery houses of all times, Mauboussin. The house was established in Paris in 1827 but it was almost 100 years later when it really became known worldwide under the creative genius of George and his son Pierre Mauboussin. They participated in all the major exhibitions and were awarded the Grand Prix at the Exposition des Arts Decoratifs in Paris in 1925 (coincidentally when this bracelet was made!).

Here is an idea for the perfect day in Paris before Christmas, on the 13th Christie's is auctioning a number of fine pieces from amateur collections and the Bvlgari exhibition at the Grand Palais is already open!!
