Reviews

Exquisite and delightful best describes this beautifully illustrated title highlighting the theme of animals in gems and jewelry. The text, by jewelry collector Tennenbaum and former Tiffany & Co. archivist Zapata, focuses on the historical background of various animal themes. Each of the six chapters highlights a different era from the 19th century to the present, with the introduction focusing on jewelry from ancient Egypt to the Renaissance. The magnificent illustrations and photographs, over 300 in full color, showcase the jewelry in various forms, including brooches, pins, necklaces, rings, and bracelets. Many of these creations were produced by such notable jewelry houses as Van Cleef & Arpels, Faberg, Cartier, Boucheron, and Tiffany and feature items ranging from the elegant and classical look, to art nouveau and art deco, to funky and whimsical. Highly recommended for collections focusing on the decorative arts and jewelry. Stephen Allan Patrick, East Tennessee State Univ. Libs., Johnson City Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
