A Champagne jewel: Karl Mazlo adorns limited-edition Moët Impérial Jeroboam

Brass was the material of choice for Karl Mazlo when creating a Moët & Chandon Jeroboam adornment. The limited-edition bottles mark the first time the French jeweler – known for his surface effects – has worked with the metal alloy on such a scale.

The terroir of Epernay in France’s Champagne region inspired Karl Mazlo in his creation for a Moët Impérial Jeroboam. The French artisan conceived a brass sculpture that adorns the bottle; the pedestal’s organic lines recall a map of Epernay, while the medallions are meant to evoke Champagne bubbles. Mazlo manually hot-worked the brass at 800-900°C to create the medallions’ complex patterns, while spheres act like mirrors to reflect the light.

"Creating texture through hybrid techniques, always using my hands, is my specialty," Mazlo said in a statement. "Brass is a material that reverberates light with interesting opposition and contrast." Having never worked with brass on such a scale, Mazlo adapted his techniques to the larger dimensions.

Each Moët Impérial Jeroboam is nestled in a wooden coffret sheathed in white linen paper affixed with Moët & Chandon’s red seal.

Launching for the end-of-year holiday season, just three limited-edition bottles will be available (in France, Japan and the UK). Each retails for €25,000.
