An Art Deco period diamond encrusted and enamel necessaire by the well known Parisian jewellers Lacloche Freres sold for three times its opening bid!
It was consigned from a client overseas and guided by senior valuer John Leatt to an estimate of £4000-6000. It was undoubted quality, although not in perfect condition. After huge amounts of enquiries on the internet, it was left to the telephone bidders on the day to battle it out.
Watch as the all the action unfolds for this quality item.
