The Parisian artist and jeweler Jean Schlumberger's (1907-1987) career began as a costume designer for Elsa Schiaparelli. Recognition came when in 1955; he joined Tiffany & Co, becoming the first designer given the privilege of signing his name to his jewelry creations. Schlumberger's love of nature such as butterflies, birds, sea life and flowers lean to enchanting designs that are highly prized and very collectible to this days.
In 1956 the president of tiffany & co. Walter Hovin asked Jean Schlumberger to begin designing for the firm. He had his own workshop at the company until his retirement in the late 1970's and was eventually made vice president of the company. Schlumberger designs at tiffany were remarkable for their whimsical interpretation of natural forms. He was especially inspired by the sea creatures and others animals. He was an exceptional designer, jeweler and a master enameller.
They are in perfect condition with vibrant blue enamel and are accompanied by the designer’s jewelry box.
