Very Rare Art Deco Piece from Gustave-Roger Sandoz, pioneer of the Modernism in Jewelry. it makes this piece very Important for a Private collector or a museum.
The Maison Gustave Sanzdoz was a family affair led by three successive generations all of whom were prominent and active members of the jewellery profession in their own times. Gustave-Roger (1867-1942) took the helm in 1891 and strengthened the companies focus on jewellery, particularly gold work and gem set pieces for which it quickly developed a reputation. in 1920, when his son Gerard joined his father, their style had already evolved to keep pace with the increasingly modern times. By the time of the Exposition Internationale des Art Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes in 1925, of which Gustave-Roger was one of the most committed and vocal promoters, Gérard was already gaining recognition for his bold, geometric pieces. Their ideology can be resume with their quote : “Today, a piece of jewellery, inspired directly by our contemporary aesthetic, must be simple, severe and constructed without superfluous ornament”
