It’s hard to find all of the information behind these masterpieces. But, I wanted to post them to show you how jewelry at the turn of the last century was a work of art. The jewelers didn’t just clump these magnificent pieces together. This jewelry was made to be absolutely stunning:
(I have not seen these 2 first ones)
Gold, Plique-a-Jour Enamel and Diamond Pendant-Brooch, sold for $2,000 via Doyle New York (June 2016).
An Art Nouveau Mother-of-Pearl and Gold Haircomb, by Georges Foquet. Sold for $38,400 via Christie’s (October 2006).
I cannot find all of the info on these 2 brooches but they are called “Nymphs”
My alltime favorite piece by Rene Lalique. He was also a famous Glazier.
