Beautiful and feminine paste bracelet, with an 'en tremblant' flower motif in the centre, from Christian Dior, made in the early 1950s. Rare and highly collecitble, this piece is highly characteristic of the motifs in Dior design at the time - the court of Versailles, a time of greater opulence and grace.Mitchel Maer made pieces of the highest quality for Christian Dior, for a limited period only in the early to mid 1950s, his pieces are highly cherished. This bracelet is fully marked. Christian Dior was born into a wealthy family in 1905, being raised in the Normandy seaside town of Granville. Working first for Robert Piguet and then for Lucien Lelong as a head designer, during the war years, he then opened his own couture house. His now highly celebrated and iconic first collection ‘Corolle’ caused a sensation, and is now known by its more famous name ‘New Look’. From the very beginning in 1947, jewellery played a very prominent part in his collections, initially recalling the pomp and grandeur of the 18th century , its femininity and glamour, and later moving into extravagant experiments with Austrian stones and paste, throughout the late 1950s until the 1970s.
