Review and Discussion

From the Paper:

"Cartier (hereinafter alternatively "the company") was established in Paris in 1847 and has become what the company describes as "one of the world's most esteemed and respectful companies in the luxury goods industry" (Cartier 1). Indeed, like the brand name Cadillac, the name "Cartier" is synonymous with the best in jewelry. In this regard, the company adds that, "Today, the Maison is renowned worldwide for its high jewelry creations and watches, perfumes and prestige accessories - symbols of craftsmanship and elegance, quality and excellence" (Cartier 1). By the fin de siecle, Cartier had added retail outlets in London and New York, managed by Jacques and Pierre Cartier, respectively, and continued the company's tradition of featuring the absolute best in design (Fabulous Jewelry from the House of Cartier 44). Prior to World War I, Cartier also expanded its operations to the Russian market, a move that was supported in part by the company's creation of two ornamental eggs that had previously been the sole domain of Fabrege, and presented one to Czar Nicholas II as a gift from the City of Paris (Fabulous Jewelry from the House of Cartier 44). By the late 1920s, the company had a well established reputation for its line of cigarette and cosmetic cases, brooches, bracelets, watches, boxes, and decorative objects as well as what Cartier described as "mystery clocks" (see example in Figure 1 and 2 below)."
