The Arts and Crafts movement was an international trend in the decorative and fine arts that began in Britain and flourished in Europe and North America between about 1880 and 1920. The core characteristics of the Arts and Crafts movement are a belief in craftsmanship which stresses the inherent beauty of the material, the importance of nature as inspiration, and the value of simplicity, utility, and beauty.
This creative and beautiful example of the aesthetic has a wonderful foliage design on the shoulders, with a leafy green jade stone. True to the principles of the Arts and Crafts movement, the stone was allowed to maintain its natural asymmetric oval shape, with the goldwork being made to conform to its shape rather than the other way around. A one-of-a-kind piece you won't want to pass up!
