Elegance Redefined: A Belgian Art Deco Brooch Inspired by Japonism

This Art Deco brooch, a Belgian creation from around 1920, is a harmonious blend of sober serenity and vivid expression. The design, influenced by Japonism, showcases an abstract, tropical fruit motif in 18K yellow gold. The bold contrast of coral and carré cut onyx, in striking black and red, reflects the era's characteristic geometric shapes. The intricate open work back with leafy patterns adds depth, conjuring images of a serene, secluded island. This piece not only symbolises the artistic exchange between the West and Japan but also stands as a timeless testament to the unique aesthetics of the Art Deco period.
