About

Antique jewelry object group: hair piece Condition: excellent condition Do you wish for a 360° view of this unique jewel? Just send us your request and we’ll give you the direct link to the videoclip showing this treasure’s full splendour as no picture can. Country of origin: France Style: Late-Victorian Style specifics: Late Victorian / early Art Nouveau - The subject of this piece, although typical 19th Century, announces the coming of the Art Nouveau style. Period: ca. 1890 Material: 18K yellow gold Extra information: Horn - The fibrous, pointed growth on the heads of some animals which, being tough, light, and easily worked, has for centuries been used in various forms for ornamental wear and utilitarian purposes. The horn principally used was ox-horn, ranging from white to dark brown, which has been made onto buckles, brooches, etc. In China articles have been made of Rhinoceros horn. The use of horn was revived by René Lalique (who employed it for making decorative combs, hair ornaments, and elaborate tiaras) and by Lucien Gaillard. From: An Illustrated Dictionary of Jewelry, autor: Harold Newman, publishers: Thames and Hudson Diamond(s): Ten rose cut diamonds. We do not have the weight of the diamonds which is normal in our trade when it comes to rose cuts. Birthstones: Diamond is the birthstone (or month stone) for April. Hallmarks: Although it carries a typical French control mark representing an owl , we cannot be sure it is actually French as the owl was also used for items in finished condition that were brought to be examined by the French Assay office (the eagle’s head was used for items brought in unfinished). Dimensions: height 12,90 cm (5,08 inch) Weight: 14,20 gram (9,13 dwt) Reference Nº: 18017-0151 - Copyright photography: Adin, fine antique jewelry - The jewelry on our pictures is NOT Photoshopped - Comes with certificate
