Today something a little unusual, and a great reminder that there has always been, and always will be, a luxury goods market. Imagine this sublime terrestrial globe and clock on your grandfather’s desk: in glass, chrome and leather created by Jaeger-LeCoultre for Hermès and likely designed by luxe architect and decorator Paul Dupré-Lafon (1900-1970). So voguish and terribly modern and progressive for 1935 and a now a fine statement piece for a sophisticated modern office.
A reminder that luxury goods may change, but quality will last.
