This is a unique & striking example of Cooper’s mannerist essays in jewellery design. Expressing his passion for the mystery & meaning of precious metals & stones, this idiosyncratic jewel echoes the glory of late medieval & Renaissance jewellery
‘He aimed in all his work to embody all that is best & highest in life, with a beauty of creation that stamped him a great artist’ (Edward Gordon Craig, 6th May 1933)
