A saga in Longwy enamel
Through its unique know-how and its ancestral technique of cloisonné enamels, the Manufacture des Emaux de Longwy 1798 retraces, for its new collection, the history of extraordinary collector cars.
This collection is the beginning of a SAGA honouring the mythical cars of the most prestigious brands of the automotive history of 4 countries represented by 3 models: France, Italy, United Kingdom, Germany.
An opportunity to confirm that the passion of the Houses to offer the best of their know-how always leads to beauty and excellence. These are common values shared by both the illustrious motor racing teams and Manufactures like ours: virtuosity, audacity and uniqueness.
THREE MYTHICAL MODELS
The designer Philippe Para has been able to tell through his drawing, the strength of the line and the depth of the colours what makes our house unique, mixed with the memory that we all have of these mythical models.
These drawings in cloisonné enamel are affixed to our iconic Art Deco ball. For the occasion, it is topped with a Monza tank cap in brushed cast iron, polished to a platinum finish. This object, created and produced by Craman-Lagarde for discerning collectors, is housed in a macassar ebony case. Entirely covered in leather and made by Craman-Lagarde, this case can also be used as a stelle to reveal all the sophistication of this collection.
Located in Revel for five generations, Craman-Lagarde perpetuates the excellence and tradition of art cabinetmaking thanks to the talent of craftsmen specialised in the replication of high quality 18th century and Art Deco pieces as well as in contemporary creations and publishing. Appreciated by decorators and architects, the luxury hotel industry and aesthetes from all over the world, the company, which received the Entreprise du patrimoine vivant (Living Heritage Company) label in 2011, offers unique pieces of inestimable value.
