LONDON.- A recently acquired a collection of jewellery designed by influential Russian painter and art theorist, Wallisly Kandinsky (1866 –1944) will be offered for sale by the Mayfair, London jewellery dealer Lucas Rarities, at this year’s Art Antiques London. The jewellery was manufactured in the 1960's under licence from Nina Kandinsky based on her husband's jewellery designs from the early 20th century. This will be the first time since their creation that the 14 pieces will be offered for sale.

The jewellery was manufactured in Munich, in 1969 by Cornelia Roethel and Max Pollinger, from the original designs which are held by the Lenbachhaus museum, Munich. These pieces were part of a very limited edition and represent the highest level of the goldsmith’s art.

Sam Loxton of Lucas Rarities says, “Acquiring this important collection is a great achievement for Lucas Rarities as these are most definitely pieces of art and jewellery design history. I’m sure they will generate much interest at Art Antiques London and we look forward to showcasing them there.”  Lucas Rarities specialise in rare and exceptional pieces of period jewellery and objet d’art, with a particular focus on signed pieces from the Art Deco era to the 1970s. Their collections includes a range of jewellery that fully captures the stylistic shift during the first half of the twentieth century, which saw the evolution of jewellery design into an art form.

The eminent dealers at Art Antiques London are specialists in a broad range of disciplines, including furniture, paintings, textiles, jewellery, silver, ceramics, as well as rare books and modern and contemporary objets d’art.   A global community of collectors, dealers, curators, connoisseurs and art lovers find this sumptuous summer showcase an irresistible and essential meeting place for the arts in June. The fair’s world-renowned lecture programme is a particular feature of the Fair, underpinning the Fair's academic credentials and always receives much acclaim.
