Rare prototype sautoir designed by Jean Dinh Van.

Imposing sculptural and sleek piece created in Paris in 1970. It was designed as a rectangular cushion by Dinh Van, and was produced as a prototype piece for the collection he created between the 1968 and 1972 for the house of Cartier. Carefully crafted in solid 18ct yellow gold with very high polished surfaces. Suited at top with his iconic squared hoop for its 31-inch (78cm) long chain.

A very sophisticated and extremely rare piece.
