Handcrafted decorative art objects from the world’s most sought-after brands will be on view at Saffronart, New Delhi from 20 – 26 July. Thirty-three pieces from the 19 th and early 20th centuries by Sèvres, Lalique, Mappin & Webb, Meissen, Oomersi Mawji, and a selection of Bohemian glass will be presented in this one-of-a-kind exhibition. Harking back to a time of opulence, they represent the grandeur of the nobility in Europe and India.
Saffronart has previously featured period Indian silver, including Oomersi Mawji’s intricate silverware, but this is the first time the auction house will showcase decorative art by leading Western luxury brands. Commenting on the exhibition, CEO Hugo Weihe said, “As an auction house committed to bringing rare works of art to buyers in India and around the world, we are pleased to present a one-of-a-kind exhibition of decorative arts. It is a rare treat to see these exquisite creations by leading Indian and European makers share a platform. Each is a statement piece of extraordinary craftsmanship.”
The works are available to view at Saffronart, New Delhi from 20 – 26 July and all lots can be viewed on saffronart.com.
