Description

Many influences contributed to the French Art Deco style. One was the exoticism of the Far East, typified by a theatrical Fouquet dress ornament (ca. 1923) in the Museum’s collection. Its unexpected colors and materials, including Asian jade, onyx, diamonds, enamel, and platinum, are combined in the motif of a Chinese mask. The extraordinarily large scale of the jewel suggests that it was probably intended to be a tour-de-force exhibition piece. Our elegant brooch is adapted from this magnificent ornament.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning Art Deco Mask This brooch is so lovely that I wish I could have been the copy writer who described it for the site! I adore art deco jewelry, but I don't see quality reproductions often. When I do, they are not particularly interesting, and they are pricey. This piece is as beautiful as it appears on the Met site. The quality is very good, and I am happy with the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable Suggested to several people to buy this for me for Christmas. No one did, so bought it for myself. Absolutely love it. Looks fabulous on my suits. Art deco meets quirky. Highly recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pin is beautiful, clasp has part missing I bought this pin late March after having viewed it for several months. It is as beautiful as I imagined. However, pieces of the pin clasp are missing and I cannot wear until I have it repaired by my own jeweler. I do not want to go through the 'hassle' of trying to return the pin as, even ordering the merchandise online was difficult. The website stated my password was incorrect, but when I spoke to a customer service representative, I allowed her to use my password, and she was able to get into the website for me to order my items. Very disappointed the last three years in most of my communications with the Metropolitan Museum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eye catching beauty Received the brooch as a present. I love it. I wear it for dress and for casual, and always it is noticed and complemented.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great, but colors not identical to image This is only available online-which meant I couldn't look at it before buying. I finally broke down and ordered it, I do like it but be warned, the hanging beads are not the exact color of the face. I wore it pinned to the center of a sweater, sort of if it were a pendant, and liked the looks of it. I'd give it 5 starts if the beads matched.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very unusual and strangely hadsome. Fell in love with its catalog appearance and wasn't disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and exotic. Loads of compliments and questions because it is unusual - from a time when every design inspired by the "Orient" had mystery. You must get the earrings, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Art Deco Charmer. For years I'd admired photos of this brooch in books about Art Deco jewellery, and was surprised and delighted that I could order a reproduction from the Met Store. It complements all the original deco jewelry I've been collecting and looks just like the real thing. Thanks Met Store!
