Lot Essay

Few designs have captured the imagination and enthusiasm of connoisseurs and collectors as Cartier's 'Tutti Frutti'. Jewels of this motif are directly inspired by the intricate Mughal carvings and craftsmanship found throughout the decorative arts of India from the 16th century onwards. The incorporation of Indian influence and their adaptation of Indian jewelry was one of Cartier's greatest contributions to the Art Deco period.
