Art Deco Gold, Ivory, Oxblood Coral and Black Enamel Bracelet, Georges Fouquet, France 18 kt., composed of 5 oxblood coral buttons approximately 14.6 to 14.2 mm., spaced by ivory circle links, joined by gold and black enamel bar links, signed G. Fouquet, no. 19302, with French assay marks, circa 1925. Length 7 1/2 inches. Georges Fouquet was one of the most highly regarded designers of Art Nouveau jewelry at the turn of the century. As the tastes changed from delicate and romantic styles to geometric motifs, Fouquet proved to have an adventurous spirit and chose stones such as coral and black onyx for their strong dense colors. This bracelet is an excellent and rare example of his daring sense of color and design which typified the Art Deco period. Literature: Antique and 20th Century Jewelry by Vivienne Becker, p. 284. C
