Art Nouveau Bee Brooch

France | ca.1900 | Gold, jadeite | French jewelers(maker)


The boom of the industrial revolution brought wealth and efficiency, but also monotony and tedium. Countless products that lacked individuality were copied on the assembly line, waiting to go into thousands of homes. The huge chariot of industrial design rumbled over the soft landscape, which aroused the vigilance of several artists who, with their inspiration and craftsmanship, created artworks that were closest to nature, to capture the softest touch of human emotions. This dynamic bee brooch is an appealing work of the Art Nouveau style.
