Dear Friends,

We are pleased to present to you the catalogue of our live auction 204 dedicated to Antiques and Works of Art / Modern and Contemporary Art, a two-session special auction, enclosing a wide range of pieces of particular quality, rarity and antiquity, including a large set of Jewellery, Painting, Furniture and Haute-Décoration items.

A Brooch, Art Deco style, gold and platin, carved with 21 natural sapphires, 36 baguette cut diamonds, 78 colourless brilliant cut diamonds and 22 fancy yellow colour diamonds illustrates the cover (lot 566).

A Lisbon Cut diamond – a very rare cut, allegedly used in Lisbon, in the 18th C. – which ads 8 facets more to the 33 facets of the common brilliant cut – justifies a particular reference: up today, only two diamonds with this cut are known: this one, presented carved in a later ring, and the other, well known, decorating the famous snuff box commissioned in 1755 by King D. José I of Portugal that includes the collection of the Palácio Nacional da Ajuda (lot 574).

A reference is also due to the Pair of Earrings in gold and platin carved with diamonds (lot 600).
