The appraisal of one of the world’s most fabulous treasures.
In 1930, Louis Boucheron was commissioned by the Shah of Iran to assess the Imperial Treasure of Iran: one of the world’s most fabulous treasures, comprising the most amazing precious stones and extraordinary objects Louis Boucheron had ever seen, namely a solid gold throne entirely set with precious gems and a terrestrial globe set with 51 336 stones.
It took Louis Boucheron several months to complete the appraisal and the final estimation was kept a secret forever after.
Louis Boucheron and his descendants were made the official Curators and Guardians of the Iranian Treasure, which remains in Tehran.
