This listing is for the item only. This beautiful piece was made during a period called the Art Nouveau Era! This time was also called "La Belle Epoque" in French which translates to A Beautiful Time. This was very true due to the gorgeous designs that came out of this period.
The Art Nouveau period was famous for its flowing organic designs, flowing ladies, flowing floral designs, and regal designs. The chasing technique is a very difficult silversmith process when the artist uses a nail like tool and hammer to hand etch patterns within the metal work. This process was very difficult and only the best jewelers were trained in the process. Please take this into consideration before.
