$2,475

About

This unique and captivating modernist picture frame was realized by the esteemed midcentury artist Claude Victor Boeltz, circa 1970. It features an exploded, liquid- like form created using 24 karat gold bronze with prismatic clusters of natural rock crystal affixed to the frame. These iconic pieces quickly gained popularity for their inherent beauty and impeccable construction in the 1970s and were offered, at the time, by such luxury retailers as Fred Joaillier and Cartier Paris. They are now quite rare and as timelessly appealing as ever. Excellent condition. Signed by the artist "Boeltz Made in Paris". France, circa 1970 Dimensions: 6" depth x 13.5" width x 12" diameter.
