Cocktail set by Jean Després

Classic Art Deco in the form of a timelessly elegant 1926 cocktail set by Jean Després (1889-1980), the shaker signed in hand-engraved script and each of the six cups bearing the immediate visual signature of the ‘chaine’ motif created by the designer.

A friend and associate of avant garde artists such as Braque, Leger and Modigliani, Després joined the family jewellery business after the Armistice, and became renowned for his individualistic geometric patterns. He convincingly captured the streamlined aesthetic of the machine age and a strongly Modernist feel defines the distinctive vision of a truly original artistic talent.

Height of shaker: 9½ inches (24 cms)
Height of cups: 3 inches (8 cms).
