Directors Notes

Zodiac pendants have become hugely popular and the original, vintage ones, like this one from the 1970s are the most coveted, particularly ones made by Georges Lenfant. Lenfant created zodiacs of various designs during this period for Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels, these pendants are particularly collectible and all of the exceptional quality you would expect from Lenfant. This Taurus pendant is the model that Lenfant made for Van Cleef & Arpels, yet is not signed VCA.
