This pretty little lady perfectly encapsulates the Art Nouveau movement of the 1890s, when this pin was made. In jewelry, colorful enamel work such as this was unique to art nouveau designs. Ethereal, feminine figures were prominent as well as nature-inspired lines and floral and leaf motifs. This piece is extraordinary for the lengths the jeweler took to detail even the back, which is fully carved! Truly a beauty, it looks great pinned anywhere, but it was made for lapels.
