Antique French Art Nouveau Fix Yellow Gold Plated Lady Flower Brooch Pin
Why You'll Love It. Take a closer look at this petite, unmistakably Art Nouveau brooch. In an uncommon enchanting pose, our classic Art Nouveau lady bows her head to smell a flower. Puffy petals appear to curl while serrated leaves are in crisp relief due to its openwork setting that brings the lady's physical features to life. Bright patina with minimal surface wear to the setting. Figural jewelry includes any piece that has been shaped into an animal, person, object, or detailed "day in the life" scene. Antique and vintage figural jewelry is often quite charming and collectible for the realistic or cutesy details. Specific objects or animals became popular and prolific in jewelry during certain time periods, Scotty dogs during the 1940's for example, or swallow birds during the Victorian era.
Figural jewelry is special for its detail and realism but also tells the story of the decade they were made in. On the Art Nouveau Movement. Design motifs of the Art Nouveau movement from the early 20th century are all about stylized, curving and flowing lines found in nature.
Though occurring at a similar time as the Arts and Crafts movement and sharing some design sensibilities, the Art Nouveau was far more whimsical and lighthearted. Popular figural motifs included fairies, flowers, and the "Art Nouveau lady" (a highly feminine woman generally depicted with flowing and flowered hair).
