Description

Among the exhibitors at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in April 1900 was the jewelry firm of Lon Coulon et Cie, whose wares included remarkable jewels and objects, according to a jury reporter. He went on, In terms of gem-set jewelry, let us mention a diamond-set plume in particular, a kind of marabou feather exquisitely carried out in aluminum, a metal little used to date; its lightness makes it a valuable material... Our adapted pin is based on this elegant feather exhibited at the 1900 Paris fair, which is representative of many splendid examples of French turn-of-the-century jewelry in the Museums collection.
