Georges Fouquet Art Nouveau Opal and Silver Peacock Cloak Clasp

$15,000

About

A French Art Nouveau silver cloak clasp with opals by Georges Fouquet. The cape clasp is decorated with 14 bezel set crystal opal plaques. The clasp is designed as two intertwined peacocks with extravagant whiplash 'feathers'. Circa 1900. Inspired by a noted collaboration with the renowned Art Nouveau innovator Alfonse Mucha, this cloak clasp in all its exquisite detail and voluptuous lines perfectly encapsulates the spirit of the period. Its peacock theme was a favorite motif of Fouquet and Mucha. A similar piece is pictured in Alastair Duncan's, The Paris Salons, 1895-1914: Volume I, Antique Collectors' Club, Woodbridge, Suffolk, 1994, page 251. Signed, Stamp: G. Fouquet (French assay and maker's marks) 3105. (MG #18397)
