Mimi Lipton is parting with her collection of 72 one-of-a-kind jewels crafted from 22ct gold and precious elements such as Coral, carved Amber, Jade, Burmese Tourmalines, that she has sourced and collected over many years filled with adventures.When we photographed her collection with Atelier Sturgess I asked Mimi which were her most precious objects. We photographed those objects: Anthropomorphic vessel from the Democratic republic of Congo, late 19th century, which Mimi bought in Brussels. Tibetan jewellery, the Garuda turquoise pendant was the first gold Tibetan piece of jewellery Mimi bought. The rings are also Tibetan and the necklace has 3 pendants from a royal Bhutanese necklace and extremely rare objects of desire. Ivory bangle bought in Bruxelles in the 1980s from a dealer who claimed it to be from Nancy Cunard.The Ivory knob for walking or flaneur stick belonged to Mimi’s father, who was a doctor, hence the detailed skull reminiscent of a medical drawing. The lacquer box Mimi bought in Thailand in the 1970s- 80s from an interior decorating shop which specialised in rare objects. It is made of cane, maybe in China with thick black lacquer and inlaid with mother of Pearl. These particular items were specially made for aristocrats or wealthy Thais and are difficult to come by.I thought of creating a one-off puzzle with the very sentimental picture taken that day.
