Important Haute Couture Pine Cone Necklace made by Jean Schlumberger for Schiaparelli. "Schiaparelli is above all the dressmaker of eccentricity. Has she not the air of a young demon who tempts women, who leads the mad carnival in a burst of laughter? Her establishment in the Place Vendome is a devil's laboratory. Women who go there fall into a trap, and come out masked, disguised, deformed or reformed, according to Schiaparelli's whim." Jean Cocteau. 1937 Important museum quality Art Historical necklace by Jean Schlumberger for Schiaparelli Summer 1939. Gilded metal, plastic and silk velvet. This iconic necklace was shown with slim ladylike dresses with bustle draped backs for evening. SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY. This necklace was exhibited at the Philadelphia Museum of Art at "Shocking", the ultimate Schiaparelli retrospective (2004) as well as the the Musee de la Mode, Union Centrale des Arts Decoratif in Paris. Ceceil Beaton's photograph of a Schiaparelli 1938 look from "Circus" collection, photographed in the late 1960's.
