Art Nouveau Flower Earrings
A full set of English hallmarks validates the authenticity of an object made of silver. The set includes the silver standard mark, the city in which the object was crafted, a letter which indicates the date of manufacture and a maker’s mark.
The hallmarks of this pair of turn-of-the-20th century earring are not the only telltale signs of quality. Fine silverwork displays cardinal characteristics of Art Nouveau and its use of naturalism. Leaves and stems of a simple flower transform into rhythmic lines and sensuous curves enclosing the foliate form creates a tension of dynamism and intensity of the overall configuration ready to burst forth into the world. The design forms a perfect balance of asymmetry and the poetic.
