A Short History...

The jewellery of the Art Nouveau movement took its inspiration from the natural world and organic forms. Horn was utilised extensively in French jewellery creation during the early 1900s and was carved to fashion pendants, brooches and hair accessories. This brooch is most likely French in origin too.
