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 earrings are adapted from this magnificent ornament.
