Rare: Louis Zorra Art Nouveau Pin, C. 1900, Lalique Era ➳ Gold, Diamonds, Pearls

LOUIS ZORRA Art Nouveau Stick Pin, c. 1900 ➳Extremely RareGold with Diamonds and Pearls
This beautiful antique gold pin—a paragon of the Art Nouveau style—was designed by Louis Zorra around the turn of the century (presumably in Paris, where Zora worked). The head of the pin features a woman’s face framed by a tiara made of nine diamonds and two pearls. Zorra’s name is stamped in the side of the pin, just behind the head. Adjacent to his name is the impression of an Eagle’s head, which appears to have been Zorra’s signature marking—the same impression can be found on some of his other pieces. The stem of the pin is slightly bent, but that is easily remedied; otherwise, the piece remains in truly fantastic condition. It measures three inches long.
For the Art Nouveau enthusiast, Louis Zorra needs little introduction. A contemporary of René Lalique, Zorra had a significant impact on the development of Art Nouveau jewelry. According toMuseum Calouste Gulbenkian, “Louis Zorra was one of the most well-known masters of French jewel making during the Art Nouveau period. His female masks were especially appreciated.” Zorra’s artistry was also recognized by likes of Louis Cartier.According to Hans Nadelhoffer’s exhaustive history of Cartier, there is an entry in Louis Cartier’s records dated 1900 that “mentions a pearl-studded brooch in enamel on gold depicting a girl’s head” designed by Zorra.
A brooch by Zorra was featured in a recent Art Nouveau exhibit atthe Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Cincinnati Museum of Art. The exhibit was titled “Imperishable Beauty: Art Nouveau Jewelry.”
This piece is one of a kind.
