Georges Fouquet Opal and Silver Cloak Clasp
Inspired by a noted collaboration with the renowned artist and innovator, Alphonse Mucha, this Georges Fouquet silver and opal cloak clasp, in all its exquisite detail and voluptuous lines, perfectly expresses the spirit of the Art Nouveau period. A favorite theme of Fouquet and Mucha, the peacock motif displayed in this piece is interpreted beautifully as a wearable work of art.
