Lot Essay


Legendary designer Tony Duquette made his mark designing homes for Elizabeth Arden, Doris Duke, J. Paul Getty and the Duchess of Windsor. He was discovered in the 1940s by Elsie de Wolfe, Lady Mendl, who introduced him to the international social set. Duquette was an intensely creative spirit, transforming everything he touched into decadent works of fantasy. In addition to designing home interiors, he made a name for himself creating sets for plays, movies, ballets and operas. In 1961, he won a Tony award for the costumes he designed for the Broadway production of Camelot.

Duquette had an appreciation and eye for semi-precious gemstones and incorporated them into the interiors and jewelry that he designed. Duquette created glamorous, opulent pieces, integrating his favorite gems and by using inspiration from artistic influences. His jewels are bold, often colorful and have a boundless, yet refined sense of scale.
