Inspired by Japan, the Cyclamens comb makes you travel to the other side of the globe and to the rising sun where everything is calm and sweet. Far from bright colors, it is topped by a cyclamen flower in light purple enamel, which rests on two equally delicate golden leaves. These enameled leaves seem to reflect the light with their opal inclusions. The long teeth are made of ivory.
Henri Vever, over the years and during his travels, had developed a passion for Japan, its elegance and its prints.
