This is an absolute stunner, from the exposition of the large shark’s tooth’s grain to the shark’s tooth “stone”‘s exquisitely worked silver setting. One of a kind does not begin to describe it. True wearable art.
Arthur Court has been an explorer and designer for more than six decades.
He was one of eight children raised on a farm in Minnesota. He served in the Navy during WWII and traveled extensively around the Pacific Rim, opening his eyes to the exotic far east. After the Navy, Arthur settled in San Francisco and attended the Rudolph Schaeffer School of Design. In 1966 Arthur opened his own interior design company and a store that offered unusual objects of art, mineral specimens and furniture. Arthur’s casting ability came from a line of jewelry which he designed using fossils, shells, bones and stones. The bone concept inspired a cast aluminum Antler furniture line that has been a signature look for His namesake company since the sixties and is now rare and sought after, as are his early ground-breaking jewelry pieces.
