Description


An introduction to sixty unknown treasures, wonderful objets d'art made by world-renowned jeweler Andr Chervin, founder of the premiere New York atelier, Carvin French.

Andr Chervin (b. 1927) is a world-renowned jeweler and founder of the premiere New York atelier, Carvin French. Recognized today as masters of fine jewelry-making whose dazzling creations have been sold by top retail houses such as Tiffany, Van Cleef & Arpels, Verdura, Cartier, and Bulgari, Chervin and his firm enjoy a stellar reputation among the clients who wear their refined jewelry. Unbeknownst to his many fans, Chervin also created a collection of precious objets d'art, dating from 1957 through 2013. Expressive of his artistic imagination, passion for raw materials and bygone techniques, and inimitable sense of style, these captivating treasures have never been shown to the public. Until now.

Enchanting Imagination: The Objets d'Art of Andr Chervin and Carvin French Jewelers introduces Chervin's miniature masterpieces--one-of-a-kind lamps, clocks, boxes, personal accessories, and table decorations fashioned from gold, silver, gems, and minerals, like rubies, diamonds, sapphires, jade, lapis lazuli, amethyst, and quartz. Conceived by Chervin and fabricated under his watchful eye, each object evolved over the course of many years, taking five, ten, even twenty-five years, to complete to perfection.
