Catalogue Note

We are pleased to offer accessories and fine timepieces from the Collection of Josef Von Sternberg, an Austrian-American Filmmaker who may best be known for his discovery and collaboration with actress Marlene Dietrich, and films such as Underworld (1927), Morocco (1930), The Blue Angel (1930), and Shanghai Express (1932).
The present lot was given to Josef Von Sternberg by Erich Maria Remarque, a German novelist best known for his work, All Quiet on the Western Front (c.1928), an antiwar novel set during World War I, later translated into an Oscar-award winning film by the same title in 1930.
