A Short History...

The jewellery of the Art Nouveau movement took its inspiration from the natural world and organic forms - flowers were a particularly popular motif and can be seen in this piece. Horn was utilised extensively in French jewellery creation during the early 1900s and was carved to fashion pendants, brooches and hair accessories. This pendant is most likely French in origin too.
