Made by living sculpter Claude VictorBoeltz - a self-described "Erosurrealist Master Artist", this dead stock collection was offered to us directly from the family after they became aware of our previous post. This rare group is among the last objects created expressly for CartierParis in the 1970s. This signature technique is what Victor refers to as “exploded bronze” - 24KT gold plated bronze, decorated with rare African quartz crystals. The top two are monumental in size 15" x 14" - the candelabra is 22" tall and 12" wide. The smaller sculpture above is 9" x 5".
