O Sweet Nuthin'

This is a cigarette case designed by Wilhelm Lucas von Cranach in 1915. Sterling silver, the eyes are tiger’s eye stones, and I believe the clasp is sapphire. His designs are some of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. 

The brooch at right is an octopus hugging a butterfly. Christ.

    The octopus and butterfly are amazing but my personal favourite is the ring. Two cats, I presume lions after the same prized sapphire in their jaws. Will they tear it to pieces, will one prevail over the other, will the sapphire be consumed? It is frozen action – frozen in time and only questions remain
