拍品資料及來源

Exotic, elegant, and powerful, the panther motif utilized by Cartier is perhaps one of the most easily spotted jewelry designs of all time. It was under Jeanne Toussaint’s leadership as creative director that the panther became a hallmark subject for the house in 1918. ‘Panthère’ would later become Toussaint’s own nickname, dubbed so by Louis Cartier himself. Toussaint’s chic and contemporary style helped the feline-inspired creations to flourish, with legendary jewelry collectors such as the Duchess of Windsor, Barbara Hutton and Princess Nina Aga Khan commissioning custom cats of their own.

 

Today the panther has become fully entrenched within the Cartier brand, with the felines themselves even making appearances alongside their jeweled counterparts in advertisements for the firm. The panther jewels display Cartier’s unmatched craftsmanship, with many of them moving with the distinct neatness of panthers in the wild. The bracelet offered here, for example, sleekly swivels to be placed on the wrist. Cartier has consistently evolved and reinvented the panther over the last 100 years, proving that icons can stand the test of time.
