Catalogue Note

Ernst Paltscho (1858-1929) founded the firm in 1899 in Vienna, Austria. Commissioned by the Greek Royal House, he was also patronized by many of the Austro-Hungarian aristocracy. His son Erwin joined the firm in 1918, and continued the business after his father's death. During the 1930s they became famous for their colourful carved hardstone jewels.
