The Butterfly Effect: Ben Macklowe Discusses Mystery Behind Art Nouveau Brooch

In the January 2018 issue of Avenue, columnist Carol Brodie features an ornate French Art Nouveau 18-karat gold and enamel butterfly brooch from Macklowe Gallery

In Hidden Gems, Brodie speaks with President Ben Macklowe--noting that the stunning brooch, acquired by the Gallery last year, is a bit of a beautiful mystery.

Originally owned by Wartski, London and later purchased by the eccentric jewelry collector Charlotte Chandler, neither Wartski nor Macklowe Gallery have been able to solve the mystery behind the source of this exceptional decorative jeweled butterfly.

In his interview, Ben explains that he is convinced that someone must know who the creator of this masterpiece is, and has even offered at $15,000 reward to anyone who can unequivocally prove the identity of the maker.

Any ideas?
