About the collection

The panther’s imprint has been a marker of Cartier creation from its first appearance in the form of a spotted-motif watch in 1914. She graduated from abstract to figurative representation three years later when she was depicted flanked by cypress trees on a nécessaire gifted by Louis Cartier to Jeanne Toussaint in 1917. Becoming a Maison legend, this motif runs throughout a contrasting collection of white, black, green and red. Porcelain objects, trinket tray, solitaire board, vase or paper objects, notebook, stationery, and finally a cashmere blanket.
