Structure and Ornament Studio Jewelry 1954-1960
Built on the foundation of two major collections assembled in the 1980s, Wright Auction House presents 'Structure and Ornament: Studio Jewelry 1954-1960,' a collection of mid-century modernist bijoux. Curated by Mark McDonalds, the auction features a range of ornamental pieces ranging from brooches and bracelets to hair combs and rings, from state-of-the-art goldsmiths, mid-century and contemporary icons, and even pivotal 20th century artists. While each lot in the sale stands in its own right as a unique item emphasizing different forms and varied materials reflecting themes and elements reminiscent of mid-century and modern art, the collection as a whole, shares interconnected ideas and techniques. If you’re a fan of artist jewelry, be sure to check out this sale before bidding closes on February 12th!
