Alloy (does not have silver/gold content), glass. Why You'll Love It.The organic beauty of nature comes alive in this Art Nouveau pendant. Likely worn on a watch fob originally, its curvy silver silhouette is enhanced by its foiled glass made to emulate the fantastical patterning of a peacock's plume. The unique and ethereal design on both sides of the piece brings a sense of magic and wonder that was distinctive to the era. Bright patina with minimal surface wear to the setting. Fresh sheen, some light surface wear, and no chipping on the glass. 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). 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. _gsrx_vers_1503 GS 9.2.1 (1503).
