One of the pieces featured was sold by Christie's New York on 10 Dec 2013, lot 480 for US$185,000); one plate of 'Modern French silverware by Paul Follot',two plates of 'Modern British caskets' and 'Modern British silver cups' by W. Augustus Stewart, 'The French Enameler's Art', 'Modern German pendants and brooches', 'Modern designs for jewelry by Maurice Dufresne', 'Modern Belgian jewelry by P. Wolfers'. * A rare journal. * As far as I can see from WorldCat there are only a few holdings in institutional libraries worldwide, and almost all of later issues. The Smithsonian Institution appears to be the only library that has a set from vol. 1 (1875), possibly ending with vol. 18 (1894). NYPL and the Metropolitan Museum in New York only have holdings from 1925, and Neuchatel in Switzerland from 1927. The British Library holdings start from 1910.- Rare. N° de ref. de la librería
