This delicate, Art Nouveau, French flower pin is made of carved, natural horn. Horn was one of the favoured materials in the early 20th century. The artists created butterflies and dragonflies but there were flowers too.
The pin measures 2 and 7/8” (7.3cms) wide by 1 and 1/8” (2.8cms) across the widest part.
During the creative process the horn is bathed in chemicals which gives a delicate sheen. It is then subtly stained with inks to produce the desired effect. This flower has been exquisitely carved in the curving Art Nouveau style.
On the back is silver metal old style c clip.
In fine antique condition with slight wear to the glaze, this delightful pin will arrive in a gift box.
