Art Nouveau 18k yellow gold and pearl stick pin. The stick pin takes on a chimerical form with a dragon motif intricately designed in 18k yellow gold. Art Nouveau's influence is evident in the sinuous lines and organic curves that give life to the mythical creature. The dragon, a symbol of strength and mythical wonder, adds a whimsical feel to the piece, making a bold yet graceful statement. The French touch is unmistakable, with an eagle's head hallmark proudly denoting the piece's 18k purity and French origin. Delve deeper into the history, and you'll find the distinctive hallmark of Plisson et Hartz—a rhombus enclosing the letters P and H on either side. This hallmark indicates that the piece was created by the renowned French jewelry house specializing in chimerical jewels from 1898 to 1904.
