Country of origin

Style
Art Nouveau - Art Nouveau (French for New Style) is an international movement and style of art, architecture and applied art - especially the decorative arts - that peaked in popularity at the turn of the 20th century (1890–1905).

The name "Art Nouveau" is French for "new art". It is also known as Jugendstil, German for "youth style", named after the magazine Jugend, which promoted it, and in Italy, Stile Liberty from the department store in London, Liberty & Co., which popularised the style, and in Holland as “Sla-olie-stijl”, Dutch for “salad oil style” after a advertisement poster for this product that was made in that style.

A reaction to academic art of the 19th century, it is characterized by organic, especially floral and other plant-inspired motifs, as well as highly stylized, flowing curvilinear forms. Art Nouveau is an approach to design according to which artists should work on everything from architecture to furniture, making art part of everyday life. Although Art Nouveau fell out of favour with the arrival of 20th-century modernist styles, it is seen today as an important bridge between the historicism of Neoclassicism and modernism.

Theme
Four leaf clover - The three leaf clover became famous from around 450 AD (± 1,600 years ago) by Saint Patrick. Because, it was said that Saint Patrick then stepped from the cathedral in Ireland on Easter morning, stooped down and picked a shamrock. He showed it to the crowd of parishioners, and then said, "This Plant represents the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit!" Since that time, the three leaf shamrock has become world famous! And from this time on, when clovers were made popular, the rare four-leaf clover also became popular and was considered to be lucky.
