Object history note

Auguste Pageot was a freelance jewellery designer apparently working for jewellers such as Cartier in London. This body of work is important because the brief period when he worked can be pinpointed to 1908 and his untimely death in the First World War in 1917. His high quality and prolific output of designs thus provide a valuable record of design from 1908 to 1917.
