Coveted: Artistic Luxury

Rob and I dropped in to the Legion of Honor on Saturday to catch the Artistic Luxury exhibit before it moves on at the end of the month.

So many beautiful items! The emphasis on detailed craftsmanship over expensive materials (although there were still plenty of those) was my favorite part. I'd take this lovely Lalique swallow comb or even just the artist's drawing for it. Oh, bats...even the drawings sell for over $10k.
