For your consideration, an extremely rare Paul Voltaire mid-century sterling silver bracelet, circa 1950's. The hammered silver bracelet features raised details in a wave or mountain motif, and two letters ("SC" , or "JS").
This supremely modernist bracelet measures 7 cm long, approximately 6 cm wide, and is 1.5 cm deep. The piece weighs 1.2 oz. and is stamped "Paul Voltaire" "Sterling", and is in excellent vintage condition, though perhaps missing a clasp (the bracelet fits securely and comfortably on the wrist). Paul immigrated to the US from Austria in 1936 and was active in the New Milford, CT area from the 1950s until his death in 1979. He was a metallurgical engineer by trade, but decided on an art career after working for the World War 11 effort. He was a founding member of the Craftmen's Equity in New York City and opened his first shop in Greenwich village. He was comfortable working in a variety of metals. Most of his work is one-of-a-kind. His pieces are scarce, especially bracelets.
Some of the other well-known modernist jewelers working in and close to Greenwich Village in the 1940s and early 1950s were Bob and Esta Blood, Arthur King, Sam Kramer, Idella La Vista, Ed Levin, Paul Lobel, Frank Miraglia, Frank Rebajes, George Salo, Art Smith, Henry Steig, Bill Tendler, Ed Wiener, and Armand Winfield.
This offering represenst a rare opportunity to acquire and exceptional work of mid-century "wearable art" from a important American silversmith.
