Motives from the animal world are very popular in antique jewellery. Every epoch had its preferential motives. Whether the snake in the Victorian or the cicada in the art nouveau– the efforts of the jewellery creators were always directed to bring a very lifelike liveliness into the representations.
These pieces of jewellery were not always produced of precious metals. Organic materials, such as horn or artificial materials like Lucite were used as well. Discover our exceptional, unique and “lively” antique and Vintage jewellery.
