Description

At the end of the 19th century, artists and designers longed for new forms of expression. The traditional ornaments no longer seemed contemporary but overloaded and used up. The early Art Nouveau found its answer in the realm of the flowing line; the incipient Modernism finally in the world of technology. The brooch here appears to be a work of calligraphy, for it appears to have been artfully drawn with a single brushstroke. Starting from a simple initial point, a straight rod stretches out effectively. It swings out to pick up a dark blue sapphire in a facet cut and enclose it with an elegant curve. As if the gold wanted to form a loop, it wraps around itself and finally comes to rest as if in a swift movement. A larger old-cut diamond is set at this end point, while small diamond roses accentuate the curves. Almost like a precious wand, the brooch appears to be more than ten inches long - almost as if you can conjure up a patronus. The beautiful sweep of the object breathes the spirit of Art Nouveau; the workmanship of reddish gold with diamond settings of silver also attest to its creation in the years around 1900. The hallmarking speaks for its creation in Germany. The pin is in first-class condition and came to us here in Berlin.
