THE PROPERTY OF A GENTLEMAN
From an intricately worked 15th-century spoon to a Georg Jensen jug, via a Rococo sugar box made by the greatest silversmith of the 18th century
Four contemporary silversmiths — hailing from China, Belgium, Britain and Japan — who have harnessed ancient techniques to their own distinctive styles

François de Ricqlès, President of Christie's France, explains how this exceptional work speaks to the Rockefellers’ mutually admiring relationship with France
