An antique Russian Art Nouveau gold, white diamond, brown diamond, and pearl brooch or pin by Imperial Court Jeweler Karl Bok (Bock), St. Petersburg, 1899-1904. The brooch cast and chased in Art Nouveau taste as a continuous oval whiplash terminating in a stylized blossom set with an oval brown diamond and two natural pearls, above rose cut brown and white diamonds. The pin with a small guard to protect the wearer's fingers and clothing. Struck with maker’s mark and 56 standard (the equivalent of 14K). 1 ½ w x 7/8 h in. (3.6 x 2.1 cm). The firm of Karl Bok (1851-?) received the designation of Supplier, or Purveyor, to the Imperial Court in 1901. Primarily jewelers rather than silver- or goldsmiths, the firm had shops in Moscow and St. Petersburg; their Saint Petersburg shop was located in a prime location at No. 9 Bolshaya Morskaya, the street on which all the most important jewelers had their shops. The superior quality of their work was recognized both in Russia and abroad: they received the Gold Medal at the 1896 All-Russian Exhibition in Nizhnii Novgorod as well as at the 1900 Paris Exposition universelle.
