Art Nouveau Curvilinear Marcasite Parure


A magnificent unique antique matching set consisting of a necklace, bracelet and drop earrings that have screw-back fittings.  The elaborate individual curvilinear links create an wonderful undulating design to each of these pieces.  The necklace alone is a phenomenal piece of art just by the way it has been cleverly designed and created with a sweeping central double swag of curvilinear links from which hang three long articulated sculptural drops on one side of the necklace.  The main feature of this beautifully necklace is the exquisite off-centered ornate pendant from which hang three large articulated sculptural drops that actually sets this creation aside from any other necklaces from this era.  The bracelet emulates the pattern of the necklace and features seven articulated sculptural drops.  The large earrings with their sculptural design and long articulated drops compliments this mesmerising suite of jewellery perfectly.  Jewellery of this period is often depicted with romantic and  often mystical themes within their designs just like the alluring undulating curves in this gorgeous set that epitomises this era wonderfully.  The set is marked silver – C.1910.
