«Precious Art Deco Objects from the Collection
of the Prince and Princess Sadruddin Aga Khan»


EXHIBITION APRIL 4 - 25, 2018

 

L’École, School of Jewelry Arts presents for the first time in France, a selection of art objects from a remarkable collection of the Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan. This exhibition runs from April 4-25, 2018.

The precious boxes that make up that collection were amassed for his wife, the Princess Catherine Aleya Beriketti, and represent incredible masterpieces of inventiveness, creativity, fantasy, skills and technical prowess.

These precious objects, whose craftsmanship was as important as their function, were specially designed for the first wave of ‘liberated’ women in the 1920s: women who smoked, enjoyed going out, applied make-up in public, and kept track of their numerous social engagements with a watch or a clock.

Cigarette cases, nécessaires (vanity cases), powder compacts and other precious objects in gold enriched in ornamental or precious stones, adorned with mother-of-pearl, lacquer or translucent enamel, sometimes enhanced with miniatures of Asian or Western inspiration, were presented for the first time in New York at the Cooper Hewitt Museum on the occasion of the exhibition «The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s».

At L’École, School of Jewelry Arts, they will be exhibited in a scenography highlighting the multiple Chinese, Japanese, Persian and European influences on these exceptional Art Deco objects.

Free entrance April 4-25 
Monday- Saturday – 12PM-6PM
31 rue Danielle Casanova 75001 Paris
