Pure Art Nouveau, nothing more, nothing less

nothing more, nothing less

The name Art Nouveau most of us know but depending on the country the style has some different names. In Germany it was called "Jugendstil", after a magazine called Die Jugend (The Youth), in Holland "Slaoliestijl" (salad oil style) after an advertising for salad oil and in Italy "Floreale" or "Stile Liberty" (after the London store that featured it).

One of the joys of our m├ętier is that every now and then we stumble upon a piece of absolute beauty. As was the case this week when the depicted Art Nouveau pendant was being offered to us. It's a sort of locket except there is no place for pictures because the original mirrors are still inside. Pure Art Nouveau, made in France, bigger then it appears on the picture (height 6.10 cm or 2.40 inch), fully signed E.Dropsy and of a quality that we hardly see. Look and enjoy!
