“Czech jewelery has always been of a high standard, especially in the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods, but it is one of the finest in the world. And because we have chosen the motto Czech Treasure for Antiques this year, there will be more and more exhibitors. presents, among other things, jewelry from this period,” said Simona ustková, vice president of the Antiquities Merchants Association.
One of the specimens he showed was a so-called cocktail ring with diamonds and emeralds from the 1920s to 1930s, made in the Art Deco style. Cocktail rings are a distinctive oversized piece of jewelry, perfect for an afternoon party or cocktail, that became a symbol of the successful independent woman in the 1920s. The highlight of this year’s Antique Exhibition is the collection of Czech garnet jewelry, which represented the Czech Republic at the World Expo in Dubai.
But Czech treasures aren’t limited to jewelry. Visitors to the exhibition will also find a number of examples of Czech glass or works by Czech modernist writers.
The Antiquities Merchants Association brings together antique dealers, and its members may also include owners of private galleries, antiques and art auction houses, forensic experts and restorers. The association strives for the professional development of private and public collection in the Czech Republic and professional business in the field of antiques.
