New York—Christie’s New York’s Magnificent Jewels auction, happening in April, will offer jewelry lovers a mix of lots spectacular and whimsical.
In the latter category is a rare Cartier Art Deco charm bracelet. The jewelry house created the 14-karat gold and enamel bracelet in 1937 to coincide with the release of Disney’s first animated feature film, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.”
The film garnered Walt Disney an honorary Oscar at the 11th Academy Awards and his wife, Lillian, wore a version of the bracelet to its premiere.
It depicts each of the seven dwarves and Snow White, and in 1937 would have retailed for $100. Today, Christie’s is predicting that it will fetch between $15,000 and $20,000.
