A rare Art Nouveau brooch by FUSET Y GRAU.
This 18 Kt. and platinum brooch is mounted with old cut diamonds and 1 sapphire. Length x width: 12,5 x 2,3 cm. Weight: 20,4 gram.
FUSET Y GRAU was a contemporary of Lluis MASRIERA, also based in Barcelona, and who worked in a similar artistic style through the late 19thand early 20thcenturies.
Both are considered as the leading representatives of the Spanish ‘Modernista’ movement, the Catalan variant of Art Nouveau.
Fuset was a craftsman distinguished by his use of diamonds, ivory, pearls, colored stones and yellow gold in his work.
Fuset Y Grau’s pieces were shown at the International Decorative Arts Exhibition in Paris, 1925.
Not only is this masterful brooch depicted but also a few other jewels of Fuset Y Grau.
