Collection of Jacques Guerlain;
Galerie J. Kugel, Paris, 21 February 1997.
Collection Jacques Guerlain. 舊藏;
Jacques Guerlain (1874-1963)
This superb Louis XV ormolu-mounted garniture was one of the treasured and important lots of the celebrated Jacques Guerlain Collection. The creator of some of the most iconic perfume scents such as Shalimar, Mitsouko and l'Heure Bleue, Guerlain was also a great collector and connoisseur of oriental art and particularly ormolu-mounted porcelain objects. His superlative collection adorned the grand salons of his apartment of parc Monceau and his house in the Loiret. Only the best was good enough for Jacques Guerlain. Testimony of this was the sale held on 24 November 2018, where Maître Guillaume Cornet sold in Orléans a selection of Guerlain's porcelain and Delft collection. Among which, a rare Régence ormolu-mounted pair of celadon vases sold for €206.400 (incl. buyers premium), and a pair of Louis XV ormolu-mounted cracqueled celadon baluster-shaped vases sold for €109.200 (incl. buyers premium).
Please note, the porcelain Kangxi (1662-1722), the mounts mid-18th century.
