Exquisite Chanel handmade Moghul style necklace/sautoir by Maison Gripoix, 1930s


Wonderful, stylish and beautifully made double tassle/sautoir necklace in both round and faceted beads, pearls and paste rondelles. Highly typical of the Chanel style by Maison Gripoix from the 1930s, very wearable and highly collectable, in a classic colour way, and very characteristic of the fine work of this artisan. This necklace is unsigned. Not much needs to be said about Coco Chanel, so famous and successful a designer is she! The oldest and probably the most well known workshop of bijoux de haute couture, Maison Gripoix has endured for four generations of the family , their most famous collaborator and customer being Coco Chanel, who started working with Suzanne Gripoix in the 1920s , continuing through until 1969. Known for their technique of imitating mother of pearl, and creating iconic creations in nacre and poured glass, delicate metal and glass flowers being a signature model, as well as the famous ‘lily of the valley’ brooch for Christian Dior. Working with Lanvin, Poiret at the beginning through to Chanel , Dior and many of the 1950s couturiers, Yves Saint Laurent and again to Christian Lacroix, Jean Paul Gaultier and Marc Jacobs in more recent times.
