The estate of the dragonfly
Art Nouveau takes flight, in a handpainted dragonfly
The Art Nouveau movement of the late 19th century was a joyous flowering of art, design, and fashion. New shapes and flowing forms inspired by nature meant that everything from jewelry to furniture was suddenly pleasing to the eye, and playful in its knowing nods to natural wonders like flowers, birds, and insects.
The Dragonfly Treasure Brooch is a piece you’d find at an estate sale among vintage treasures from the early 1900s. This modern piece of Art Nouveau evokes the shapes and colors of the ancient and mighty four-winged insect in handpainted enamel and sparkling stones. The detailing is exquisite, right down to the intricate scales of the dragonfly’s wings.
Gracing scarf, lapel, or tucked into upswept hair, the Dragonfly Treasure Brooch is a true find with a most fortunate price.
