1930s Jakob Bengel Art Nouveau Style Cameo Pin
Do you want to wear a piece of history?
A machine made pin of a silver metal amalgam this piece demonstrates the start of jewellery making in the modern age. Simple, yet striking in its gorgeous raised image this brooch represents one of the most exciting periods of design.
These pins are authenticated Jakob Bengel pieces that were purchased in Germany, in the 1980s and left in storage until recently. They are a wonderful example of jewellery made to be fun and affordable. The style is old fashioned compared to his experimental Bauhaus and Art Deco styles, almost Art Nouveau. It is a wonderful reflection of the transition from old to new as well as a great understanding of what his contemporary customers wanted. Designed in the 1900s and manufactured in the 1930s. Fabulous.
