Art Nouveau Brooch

This wonderful bas-relief brooch comes directly from the floral Art Nouveau period. Oval in shape, this lovely antique brooch represents an beautiful woman in profile, her hat adorned with small flowers and her dress made of a drapery. Two elegant dragonflies encircle her and bring life to this little piece of art. The dragonfly embodied many of the themes that the Art Nouveau style evoked: nature, sensuality and metamorphosis from one physical form to another. Furthermore, artists in the Victorian and Art nouveau period were inspired by the Japanese paintings of dragonflies reflecting the ability of light and joy to shine through. The brooch itself is encircled with small, detailled flowers and scrolls. The clasp is a pin with a safety hook.

This yellow gold brooch is tested for 18k gold and signed by the French Artist Armand Bargas. A. Bargas worked in Paris in the late 19th & early 20th century and was a member of the "Société des Artistes Français".

It would not surprise you that we love everything about this thin, light, floral jewel. We like the fact that the brooch is well decorated, we love the many little but breathtaking detailles and the lovely lady who is the subject of this pendant.
