Gérard Sandoz ring acquired by the Musée des Arts Décoratifs

Thanks to the patronage of the Van Cleef & Arpels School, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs has just acquired Gérard Sandoz’s 1928 ring. The latter thus joins the Gallery des Bijoux, in which other Art Deco pieces by Templier, Després and Fouquet are exhibited. As you may be aware, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs collection, with its 4,000 items, was established mainly through donations. The 18th century items come largely from the collection of the goldsmith Boin-Taburet, while the chains are from the chainmaker Auguste Lion. Most of the 19th century pieces were donated by Henri Vever in 1924. More recently JAR, Lorenz Baümer and Gilles Jonemann also donated one of their jewelry pieces.
