Unit price/ per
This beautiful Art Nouveau brooch features a floral design, with pearl flowers and enamel leaves, that have a delicate graduated colouring that changes in the light. Art Nouveua lasted from 1890-1910 and had a lasting impact on jewellery design. In reaction to increasingly machine-made, mass-produced jewellery, free-floating forms from the natural world were explored as never before, and it is treasured today for it's design innovation (rather than the materials).
MATERIALS: 7 larger natural pearl, surrounded by 21 smaller pearls. 18ct gold and enamel foliate
