In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above. Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot to satisfy themselves as to condition and must understand that any statement made by Sotheby's is merely a subjective qualified opinion. Illustrations in the catalogue may not be actual size. Prospective purchasers are reminded that, unless the catalogue description specifically states that a stone is natural, we have assumed that some form of treatment may have been used and that such treatment may not be permanent. Our presale estimates reflect this assumption. Certificates of Authenticity: Various manufacturers may not issue certificates of authenticity upon request. Sotheby's is not under an obligation to furnish the purchaser with a certificate of authenticity from the manufacturer at any time. Unless the requirements for a rescission of the sale under the Terms of Guarantee are satisfied, the failure of a manufacturer to issue a certificate will not constitute grounds to rescind the sale. Gemological Certificates and Reports: References in the catalogue descriptions to certificates or reports issued by gemological laboratories are provided only for the information of bidders, and Sotheby's does not guarantee and accepts no responsibility for the accuracy, terms or information contained in such certificates or reports. Please also note that laboratories may differ in their assessment of a gemstone (including its origin and presence, type and extent of treatments) and their certificates or reports may contain different results.

Tullio Gramantieri once wrote for the magazine Vita Artistica in 1926, stating 'This superiority of Buccellati, stemming from having brought goldsmithery into the field of art, was immediately sense by the crowd that collected his pieces with ever growing enthusiasm, and by a vast host of jewelers who, still seek to emulate him, however without succeeding in producing anything but banal and incorrect imitations - moreover rather easily recognizable.' Mario Buccellati was inspired by Burano lace, and created intricate gold jewels akin to lacework in linen, tulle or silk. This example shows an engraving technique called rigato, by moving the burin in the same direction to achieve a finishing texture that looks like silk: a signature look of Buccellati.

Tullio Gramantieri曾在1926年為《 Vita Artistica》雜誌撰文說:“ Buccellati的這種優越性源於將製金工藝帶入藝術領域,立即引起了人們的關注,他們以越來越高的熱情收集他的作品,並受到了廣泛的歡迎。 很多珠寶商,仍然試圖效仿他,但是除了平庸和並不準確的模仿之外,沒有成功地創作,而且相當容易辨認。 Mario Buccellati的靈感來自Burano花邊,並創造了類似於亞麻,薄紗或絲綢花邊的複雜金飾。這件手鐲完美詮釋了一種特殊的雕刻工藝,稱為rigato,其方法是沿相同方向移動刻刀,以獲得如絲綢般的紋理:Buccellati的經典之象!
