Magnificent Chanel Camellia Ear Cuff

About

"Chanel Avec Karl". Rare, unique, single Chanel Camellia Ear Cuff made for the runway, likely an ending bridal look. Completely hand made by Maison Gripoix with a series of vari sized, hand made poured glass flower heads with mother of pearl lacquer, crystal paste centers and emerald pate de verre leaves. 1980's France. Unsigned. Excellent Condition. Length 6.50", Width 3.50". The camellia has long been a leit motif and emblem of the House of Chanel. It has been engraved onto buttons, woven into embroideries, fashioned out of silk to adorn dresses, head wear and jacket lapels. Karl Lagerfeld has carried on the Chanel camellia tradition. The camellia held a very special significance for Mademoiselle Chanel. It was the blossom offered to her by the love of her life Boy Capel and formed part of her private world, scattered on Coromandel screens, chandeliers and in bouquets with rock crystal. It became her emblem. The magnificent chandelier that hangs in her Paris apartment – which she designed herself – is adorned with dozens of crystal orbs, stars, grapes and camellias. Pure and white, with elegant roundness, Chanel’s japonica alba plena has no scent, because Mademoiselle did not want her flowers to interfere with her famous No°5 fragrance.
