Whilst I have been grandly calling for the return of Cartier's original name for their Indian inspired, multi-gem jewellery, I have been mis-spelling it!
During a discussion about this subject with a well-informed Cartier collector*, we looked up this 1913 advertisement which was originally published in Hans Nadelhoffer's seminal book on Cartier. In it, it is clear that Cartier spelt Hindoo the really old-fashioned way with a double O at the end. I had spelt it differently.
So apologies to one and all for misspelling it and thank you CMD*. Your collaboration brought this to the fore and from now on, we shall be referring to these jewels as Bijoux Hindoo!
