Brooch, ca. 1926

This is a brooch. It was produced by Maison Fouquet. It is dated ca. 1926. Its medium is grey, rose and yellow gold.

Parallel with the lavish use of colored stones was another trend by experienced jewelers, like Parisian Georges Fouquet, to capture artistic movements such as Cubism in jewelry, as seen in his three-color gold brooch of about 1926.

It is credited Neil Lane Collection.
