I've got a weakness for cylindrical vitrines, something about the abnormality of the design makes it significantly more appealing and it really draws attention to its contents in a way like no other. The Art Deco piece is mounted in metal with an ebony stand and top, complete with a mirrored interior. The design echoes that of Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann, a name synonymous with this era of vintage furniture design. At auction from Christie's on the 14th of October, the vitrine hopes to sell for $4,000-6,000.
