305 Authentic Art Nouveau Jewelry Designs
Typified by organic, botanical curves and styling, these are the Art Nouveau designs of Maurice DufrŽne (born 1876) who captured the essence of the style in jewellery, becoming a leading decorative artist of considerable influence. He was frequently represented in the Salon d'Automne and played a major role in planning the Pris Exposition Universelle of 1937.

This authentic period work features over 300 spectacular DufrŽne pieces: pendants, combs, buckles, rings, bracelets, brooches, umbrella handles, penknives, buttons, clasps, and scissors in detailed photographs reprinted from rare, turn-of-the-century folios.

The elegant, royalty-free illustrations are exquisitely detailed with flower, foliage, and butterfly motifs, and are readily adaptable to any design use.
