BRAFA 2019 features a unique Art Nouveau choker by Philippe Wolfers
The international BRAFA Art Fair 2019 (26 January - 3 February) features breathtaking treasures from throughout the history of art. Epoque Fine Jewels is offering this Art Nouveau highlight by Philippe Wolfers of circa 1901-1902. This piece is the 'coup de coeur' of Werner Adriaenssens, a Professor of History of Decorative Arts at the VUB as well as curator Decorative Arts of the 20th Century at the Royal Museums of Art and History in Brussels.
The jewel-encrusted ‘Glycines’ choker is a unique piece of Belgian heritage which once belonged to Sophie Willstädter, the wife of Philippe Wolfers. This choker is one of the most impressive pieces of jewelry ever designed by the Belgian goldsmith. Of the approximately 130 unique pieces of jewelry Philippe Wolfers designed under his own name (1897-1907), very few pieces of jewellery are still around. Dimensions: 35/38 cm x 6,3 cm.
