Christie’s Paris Auction, Joaillerie 13th June 2019
From the Collection of Aimée Crocker, The Proper Bohemian
Leopoldo Janesich opened his first shop in Trieste in 1835, offering jewelry and silverware to an international clientele. At the end of the 19th century, he established a branch store in Paris at 19 rue de la Paix, followed by locations in Biarritz, London, Monte Carlo and Vichy. Their clients included such eminent personalities as the Archduke of Austria, King Nicholas of Montenegro, the Duke of Aosta, and Aimée Crocker, who was dubbed “Queen of Bohemia” by the press. Janesich is well known for his pieces in the Art Deco style. The family tradition is being continued by Francesco Janesich, the sixth heir to a jeweler’s family, in Trieste, in via San Nicolò 30, where in the great respect and tradition of its 175 years experience, jewels and precious items are still conceived and realized.
