Isabelle Cartier-Stone first joined Christie’s in 1997 working in Geneva and Monaco before opening the first silver auctions in Paris in 2001 with the Karl Lagerfeld collection. In 2006, she became a consultant working on important sales such the Yves-Saint-Laurent collection in 2009 or the Pinto collection in 2017. During that period, she also wrote and contributed to several publications on French, Belgian and German silver. In 2018, she returned to Christie’s London working for the silver and the gold boxes departments. A specialist in continental silver, Isabelle has a strong interest in researching provenance and history of objects with a view to reaching a new audience of collectors.
