Mechanical Wonders at A La Vieille Russie October 26 to November 26, 2011

A La Vieille Russie and Parmigiani
Mechanical Wonders:
The Sandoz Collection




ALVR was pleased to have hosted this very special loan exhibition, which was described by Brook Mason of Artnet as the nation’s most enticing decorative arts show and not to be missed.

The first time that many of the pieces were on display to the American public, the exhibition featured early 19th century Swiss gold and enamel automaton snuff boxes, watches, magicians, and animals, the Imperial Swan Egg of 1906 and the Imperial Peacock Egg of 1908 by Fabergé, as well as contemporary interpretations by Parmigiani of watches in the Sandoz Collection.  In addition, the catalogue raisonné of the collection was introduced.

A 128-page fully-illustrated soft-cover exhibition catalogue is available for $35. plus applicable sales tax, shipping, and handling.  For ordering details, please send an email to: catalogues @ alvr.com, or click the image.
