Description

Erté Love’s Fire Corset Cuff (2” Wide)

This splendid 2 inch wide cuff, finished in a rich patina of 22k gold leaf and embellished with a sparkling Swarovski crystal, features a dramatic Erté image of an elegant lady in black and white, consumed by red-orange flames of love.

Touted as "a mirror of fashion for 75 years", Erté was one of the foremost costume and stage designers of the early twentieth century, known for his elegant and magical creations.

His artwork so beautifully incorporated into this striking, one-of-a-kind cuff is reminiscent of the costume and set designs seen in the Metropolitan Opera archives.

History

Met Costumes

All costumes and jewelry seen at the Met are unique works of art. The company puts on an average of 25 operas every year, with as many as 200 individual costumes featured in each of them, and works with some of world’s greatest costume designers to create unique pieces for an average of six or seven new productions per season. Everything is handmade in the Met’s own workshops, and many costumes and jewelry items from past productions, all the way back to the 1880s, are preserved in the Met Archives.
