Estimate    $3,000 - 4,000.

Excellent and interesting provenance, as the lot is accompanied by a handwritten 1936 "Certificat" in French (with typed translation), on the royal letterhead of Prince S. de Mégève, Comte de Capré, stating that he purchased this collection which had won first prize at the 1928 Monte Carlo and 1929 Le Havre Exhibitions and, in his estimation, "is worthy of a place in a museum."

Complete Images.

Realized: $3,000
