Impassioned Beauty in an Art Nouveau Brooch
Nature was the dominant force used throughout Art Nouveau. In content the pieces were sometimes romantic, sometimes dreamy. Here the fruit of a dogwood tree in the form of a bloom manifests several of the underlying themes.
The brooch sports undulating blossom curves with finely painted enamel in subtle tones of dark rose segueing to the pale yellow interior of the flower. Centered within is an old European cut diamond of an estimated .10 carat accented with stamens of 14k yellow gold. Three-dimensional sculpted leaves of yellow gold shadow the blossoms with a coiled tenseness of energy ready to unleash unbridled passion at a moment’s notice. Beautifully crafted with a safety clasp to ensure security. Very large for its type, it radiates artistry and harmony of organic forms.
Date: Circa 1900.
Measurements: 2 inches (5.1 cm) in length by 1-5/8 of an inch (4.1 cm) in width. Weight of 12.9 grams (8.3 dwt).
