Art Nouveau Opal Diamond Gold Byzantine Princess Diadem Tiara

About

The diadem is unmarked, but undoubtedly French and possibly by Georges Fouquet or Maison Vever. The design of the female head is reminiscent of drawings and posters by the Czech artist Alphonse Mucha, who worked closely with Georges Fouquet designing jewellery whilst he was living in Paris. Mucha was much influenced by Byzantine culture and made a series titled 'Byzantine heads' (1896-1898) in which he depicted female heads with fantastical headgear, as seen here, with the two roundels covering the ear and long gold dangling pendants, cf. In Commemoration of the 150th Memorial Birth Alphonse Mucha, exhibition in Japan 2010/11.
