Our Art Nouveau Peacock Feather Bracelet is based on an enamel belt buckle (ca. 1900) in the collection of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. In France, high-quality and affordable jewelry in the Art Nouveau style made by Piel Frères (Paris, active 1855–1925) included fashionable decorative buckles. The original enameled belt buckle, created by Frères, is in the shape of a peacock feather. This or an identical example received critical praise at the 1900 Exposition Universelle
