Magnificent French Furniture, Silver and Works of Art/The Hanover Chandelier - from the Collection of M Hubert de Givenchy

£45.00

Product description

This is a beautifully presented record of a remarkable and magnificent collection compiled by Hubert de Givenchy, a man who had enormous influence on the world of fashion in the 20th century but, alongside, maintained a passion for the allied arts of architecture and decoration.

It is the catalogue, in two volumes, for the sale of the collection by Christie's, Monaco, which took place on the 4 December 1993. The first volume gives details of the French furniture, silver and works of art in the collection while the second is dedicated to the Hanover Chandelier. Both volumes include colour photographs, many full page, and drawings and etchings giving context and history.

The two volumes are housed in a green, cloth bound slipcase which has gilt lettering and the Christie's logo to front and spine. Generally, just minor wear is evident but there are grubby marks at one end of the top edge (see photo).

Both volumes are of very good+ condition. Boards are bound in green cloth with gilt lettering and designs to fronts and spines. Both volumes show no obvious signs of wear either internally or externally and have tight binding and clean bright pages. Dust jackets are present in both cases but the jacket from the "French Furniture" volume has suffered a 90mm fold to the front corner associated with a 65mm closed tear along the fold and a 20mm closed tear to the rear lower edge (see photos). The front tear has been repaired with sticky tape.
