Beautiful and rare, art nouveau, circa 1900, Carved Horn, Cherry Blossom, Hair Barrette. The horn, from a bull or a mountain goat, has been heated and rolled to form a flat plaque which was then hand carved. After carving the horn would have been treated with hydrogen peroxide to transform it into a translucent piece which was then hand tinted to make the beautiful item it is today. The cherry blossom was a popular Japanese form seen in art nouveau jewellery, although this piece is almost certainly French. The hair clip is unsigned, however I have shown in one of the pictures how it is similar to a piece signed by Georges Pierre the image used to show this necklace is from the book Nature Transformed.French Art Nouveau Horn Jewellery. Another image shows a similar piece that was displayed in the Tadema gallery in London. The condition is very good, however, two tiny paste stones are missing. The horn part measures 10 cm by 4.9 cm, or 4 inches by 2 inches.
