Boucheron Retro cigarette holder, in 18 karats yellow gold and silver, decorated with a vermeil foliage in openwork on a silver background, set with two rubies cabochons. It’s a charming pierced cutout work. The stem and the mouth piece move as to reject the cigarette when done. Retro period, 1950’s.
This piece is an outstanding example of Boucheron’s high end craftsmanship.
The Maison Boucheron, french luxury’s embodiment, was founded in 1858 at the Palais Royal. Later in 1893, Frédéric Boucheron decided to set up in Place Vendôme, in this way, Boucheron was one of the first of the great contemporary jewelers to open a boutique there. Boucheron Paris seduced us with its iconic pieces such as Marie-Louise MacKay’s necklace, a creation from 1878 set with a 159 karats sapphire, matched in the eyes of its owner, what a luxury! Or the Point d’interrogation necklace without clasp in 1979. Not forgetting the magnificent Serpent Bohème collection created in 1968.
