Art Nouveau - Jewellery
On this board we highlight jewellery related to the famous art movement Art Nouveau (c.1890-c.1910). Jewellers styled fashionable pieces for their elite clients. Chokers, pendants, bracelets and earrings featured semi-precious materials, sculptured ivory, tortoiseshell and enamelling. Frequently, a piece would use nature for inspiration - orchids, lilies, insects, dragons and butterflies are all popularly seen. More objects can be found on our portal www.europeana.eu.
