Description

In nineteenth-century France, many jewelry houses provided adornments for the bourgeoisie while also striving for technical innovation in their craft. Among these firms was Maison Plisson et Hartz, whose jewelry can be found in the Metropolitan Museums collection. Their popular designs included animals such as rabbits, cats, lizards, tortoises, and crabs; these were conceived en ronde bosse (in the round) and pav-set with diamonds, decorated with gems. Our charming lizard pin is based on an original (ca. 1900) by Maison Plisson et Hartz.

Art History

A professional and entrepreneurial class known as the bourgeoisie emerged in nineteenth-century France. This was accompanied by dramatic changes in Paris itself, as the citys dark, winding streets were replaced with straight, broad boulevards flooded with sunlight by day and gaslight at night. Together, bourgeoisie and aristocracy strolled the parks and sidewalks, eager to participate in an increasingly public Parisian lifestyle.
