Catalogue Note

According to the consignor, Mario Buccellati was commissioned by King Fuad I of Egypt to create this dress set in the 1920s, using sapphires that had belonged to the Pasha of Cairo. Upon King Fuad’s death in 1936, the set was returned to Mario Buccellati. He subsequently bequeathed it to one of his sons, Gianmaria, who in turn gave it to his brother, Luca. It has remained in the family since.
