New in paperback, here is a dazzling survey of the life, times and flamboyant work of one of New Yorks greatest jewelers, Seaman Schepps. Sometimes called Americas court jeweler, Schepps rose to prominence in the 1930s by creating designs that defied all previous ideas of what jewelry should look like. Witty even outrageous and wildly flattering, Scheppss jewelry stood for style more than wealth. Featured on the covers of Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Look, and other magazines, it appealed to an enormous range of clients, from the Duchess of Windsor to Andy Warhol. Today, nearly 25 years after his death, his work has inspired a legion of new collectors, who seek out vintage rings, bracelets, earrings, compacts and lipstick cases, and the firm continues to produce splendid pieces based on the original designs. This book brings Scheppss extraordinary jewelry to a new generation.
