9780500237847: Henri Vever: French Jewelry of the Nineteenth Century

La Bijouterie Francaise au XIXe Siecle by Henri Vever is an indispensable survey of the jewelry produced in Paris from the Empire to the Art Nouveau period. Since it was first published in three volumes nearly one hundred years ago, it has become the definitive source of information for the jewelry profession as well as for those who simply revel in the intricate beauty of fabulous jewels. Now, for the first time, the entire text is available in English in a single volume. Vever, himself a highly accomplished jeweler, compiled a study that charts the histories of both the humblest and the most famous of his colleagues, including Bapst, Boucheron, Falize, Fontenay, Pouquet, Froment-Meurice, Gaillard, Lalique, Mellerio, and Wiese. This vivid contemporary account is full of data gathered directly from the jewelers themselves or from their descendants. It contains fascinating anecdotes concerning Imperial and Royal commissions together with entertaining tales of workshop practices. In crediting the designers, chasers, engravers, and enamelers who collaborated with the famous jewelry houses, Vever acknowledged the talents of technicians who often worked anonymously. In identifying unrecorded craftsmen, he made his book a unique document. Political, economic, and industrial developments are discussed, as are their repercussions on society and fashion. With his intimate knowledge of techniques, Vever was able to analyze changes that were continually taking place in manufacturing processes. He also recorded the changing styles in jewelry and their sources of inspiration, ranging from the Antique to the Orient. A unique feature of this English-language edition is the inclusion for the first time of over 130 color illustrations of pieces, many from Vever's collection, which appeared only in black and white in the original. 1414 illustrations, 136 in color.

Descripción Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2001. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Vever s French Jewelry of the 19th Century is a classic reference work, first published in 1906-08 by a firm called H. Floury, Libraire-Editeur in Paris. Ever since first publication it has become the Bible of all jewelry experts, buyers, sellers, scholars and historians. Only 1,000 copies were originally produced, but it has been out of print for many years, and appears only rarely in the auction houses where it fetches very large sums. This volume - the first ever complete translation into English - comprises about 1,800 illustrations; 300 colour photographs of jewels now in the Musee des Arts Decoratifs are new to this edition. These illustrations are not only photographs of specific jewels, but also sketches for jewels, photos of women wearing jewels, and prints from fashion magazines. All the great and all the now more obscure jewelers are included in the text and illustrations: Alphonse Fouquet, Boucheron, Falize, Froment-Maurice, Cartier, Chaumet, Georges Fouquet, Gaillard, Vever, Lalique, and many many more. The discussion in the text is not only of the individual jewels and types of jewelry made by these people, but also includes many entertaining anecdotes about their relations with their customers and with society in general. Being himself a jeweler, Henri Vever was able to talk personally with all the people he writes about (or their followers), and so the book has an unusual degree of authority.
