Art Nouveau style Dragonfly Brooch – silver platedThe brooch is based upon original French design and then fitted with the top quality Ballou safety catches with hinge and pin.Truly a stunning and very unusual item.Measuring 100mm (4 inches) head to tail this is a really impressive brooch.Few of the busy metal stamping factories, clustered around the Marais district in Paris, survived the First World War. The houses of Gruson, Prat and Janvier (who worked closely with the master jeweller Lalique) are no more.Our Dragonfly brooch is so unusual and unique.The skills that worked out the elegant, feminine and intricate lines, which are now called “art nouveau”, perished with the French poilus (soldiers) and disappeared with Verdun in the first world war. Many of the heavy tools however, cut by hand into the steel of that time, are still in existence; and if you know where to look, and are prepared to subsidise the work, jewellery,broochesand ear-rings from this priceless resource, using silver or brass can still be made.Most of our jewelery is stamped in these old dies, first in brass, silver-plated and then hand finished in the UK.So it follows that our art nouveau jewelery range does not represent replicas of old pieces. These are no more than the same pieces in brand-new condition.Think how out Dragonfly brooch would look on a jacket
