A new coffee table book, Cartier Panthère from Assouline, pays homage to the legendary feline that has helped define the jewelry brand. With its strength and exotic beauty, the panther is without a doubt the symbolic head of Cartier’s menagerie of serpents, flamboyant birds and four-legged beasts. The stunning color photographs chronicle 100 years of panther jewels. Contributions from top art historians and jewelry experts include anecdotes about some Cartier’s well-known personalities and patrons like Jeanne Toussain, Daisy Fellowes and the Duchess of Windsor. Cartier Panthère is available for $195 from Assouline Press.
