Catalogue Note

Mrs. Walter Matthau was known not only for her memorable on-screen performances, and as being the inspiration for the 1958 novella Breakfast at Tiffany's, but also for her impeccable taste in works of art and jewelry. Carol Grace Matthau, wife of Oscar winning actor Walter Matthau, was an important figure in Manhattan social circles and this exposed her to a rich world of valuable arts and antiques. The offered lot exemplifies her interest in collecting exquisitely crafted works of art.
