This exhibition tracing the history of jade, gathers together some 330 pieces of which one third comes from the Taipei Museum. The Art Deco section is mainly devoted to Cartier and is evidence of the phenomenal influence of China found within the clocks, toiletry sets, cigarette cases and brooches made from sculpted objects dating from the eighteenth or nineteenth century. The most spectacular piece and one of inestimable value is Barbara Hutton’s necklace made in 1934 from 27 beads of imperial jade (the greenest, the most beautiful) that perfectly match each other as they are cut from the same piece.
