Robert Larin Modernist Gold Plated Pewter Necklace 1970’s

13 Apr



Robert Larin was a well known Canadian designer based in Montreal. He made beautiful, heavily sculpted, modernist jewelry between 1968 and 1972.  His pieces are quite sought after.  This beauty weighs approx. 150 grams.  It  SOLD on ebay for $318.00 US last month.  I was ecstatic at the time of course but now I miss owning it.   Apparently these heavier large pieces did not sell well at the time and were mostly for show in the stores.  I will probably never own another one like it, but it sold to someone  in Montreal who I am sure will really appreciate the history of the piece.
