Art Nouveau (French for New Style) is an international movement and style of art, architecture and applied art - especially the decorative arts - that peaked in popularity at the turn of the 20th century (1890–1905).

The name "Art Nouveau" is French for "new art". It is also known as Jugendstil, German for "youth style", named after the magazine Jugend, which promoted it, and in Italy, Stile Liberty from the department store in London, Liberty & Co., which popularised the style, and in Holland as “Sla-olie-stijl”, Dutch for “salad oil style” after a advertisement poster for this product that was made in that style.

A reaction to academic art of the 19th century, it is characterized by organic, especially floral and other plant-inspired motifs, as well as highly stylized, flowing curvilinear forms. Art Nouveau is an approach to design according to which artists should work on everything from architecture to furniture, making art part of everyday life. Although Art Nouveau fell out of favour with the arrival of 20th-century modernist styles, it is seen today as an important bridge between the historicism of Neoclassicism and modernism.

Elegant antique cross over ring with rubies and diamonds

Most elegant antique ring with rubies and diamonds a so-called toi et moi from the antique jewelry collection of adin at www.adin.be

This late-Victorian ring is made around 1900. The Victorian era is known for its eclectic revival and interpretation of historic styles and the introduction of cross-cultural influences from the middle east and Asia in furniture, fittings, and Interior decoration. Victorian design is widely viewed as heavily indulged in an excess of ornament.

This ring shows the transition of styles from Victorian to the styles of the 20th century. The Arts and Crafts movement, the aesthetic movement, Anglo-Japanese style, and Art Nouveau style who all have their beginnings in the late Victorian era.

One of our many new arrivals... Biedermeier skillfully carved ivory brooch two dogs standing in flowery framework

Biedermeier skillfully carved ivory brooch
two dogs standing in flowery framework

Antique ivory brooch two dogs standing in flowery framework Biedermeier style from the antique jewelry collection of adin at www.adin.be
Click the picture to get to this beauty.
 
 
Different times, different opinions and morals. In the first quarter of the 19th Century people's attitude towards (what are now, because of that attitude) endangered species, was not exactly the same as our days (to put it mildly). We strongly condemn the use of ivory in our days, but in our trade we can run into some beautiful antique pieces of ivory like this one.

And what a beauty it is! The meticulous refined sculpting/engraving is a joy for the eye. Look at the collar holding the dogs together, or their legs! We have never seen such fine work and to imagine that it lasted already almost 200 years!

This brooch is a typical example of mid-European Biedermeier art. The Biedermeier period refers to an era in Central Europe during which the middle-class grew and arts appealed to common sensibilities in the historical period between 1815, the year of the Congress of Vienna at the end of the Napoleonic Wars, and 1848, the year of the European revolutions.

P.S. Eleven months a year we try to amuse you with a weekly cute antique jewelry related mail. However, this time of the year we take the liberty of sending you some mails without any special picture or back-ground information on symbolism, style or era. There will be just a list of present suggestions.

Don't worry, these few mails will be as much "hard marketing" as you can expect from us in a whole year. Rest assured that it will take another year before we will be bragging again about all those beautiful pieces of antique and estate jewelry that can be bought online from us and that it will take only about 2 or 3 working days from the moment of buying to the moment it is delivered at your doorstep.

And remember, shipping is free!

The Belle Époque (French for "Beautiful Era") was a period in European social history that began during the late 19th century from the Franco-Prussian War (1870-1871) and lasted until World War I (1914-18).

Occurring during the time of the French Third Republic and the German Empire, the "Belle Époque" was named in retrospect, when it began to be considered a "golden age" the major powers of Europe, new technologies improved lives and the commercial arts adapted Renaissance and eighteenth-century styles to modern forms.

In the newly rich United States, emerging from the Panic of 1873, the comparable epoch was dubbed the Gilded Age. In the United Kingdom, this epoch overlaps the end of what is called the Victorian Era there and the period named the Edwardian Era.

In the Belle Époque cheap coal and cheap labour contributed to the cult of the orchid and made possible the perfection of fruits grown under glass, as the apparatus of state dinners extended to the upper classes; champagne was perfected during the Belle Époque. Exotic feathers and furs were more prominently featured in fashion than ever before, as haute couture was invented in Paris, the centre of the Belle Époque, where fashion began to move in a yearly cycle; in Paris restaurants such as Maxim's achieved a new splendour and cachet as places for the rich to parade, and the Opéra Garnier devoted enormous spaces to staircases as similar show places.

After mid-century, railways linked all the major cities of Europe to spa towns like Biarritz and Deauville; their carriages were rigorously divided into first-class and second-class, but the super-rich now began to commission private railway coaches, as exclusivity was a hallmark of opulent luxury. Bohemian lifestyles gained a different glamour, pursued in the cabarets of Montmartre.
