L’ÉCOLE Van Cleef & Arpels presents a selection of art objects from a remarkable collection of the Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan.
The precious boxes that make up that collection were amassed for his wife, the Princess Catherine Aleya Beriketti, and represent incredible masterpieces of inventiveness, creativity, fantasy, skills and technical prowess.
These precious objects, whose craftsmanship was as important as their function, were specially designed for the first wave of ‘liberated’ women in the 1920s: women who enjoyed going out, applied make-up in public, and kept track of their numerous social engagements with a watch or a clock.
