Her Rococo flowing curls, ruffled dress and astonishing ostrich plumed hat showcase the ebullient whiplash lines that embody the Art Nouveau aesthetic. Repoussé metal working techniques give this gold filled locket its three-dimensional quality. The interior is nice and clean with red paper behind the intact frames. The clasp is nice and tight. Circa 1910.
