Art Nouveau Stickpin

Carter, Howe Art Nouveau lotus blossom stickpin. (J9440)

Lotus Rising


A golden lotus blossom, finely sculpted in the Art Nouveau style, reaches upwards as it opens towards the sun.  The dramatic design is accented with three small pearls.  Created by Carter, Howe & Co. in 14kt gold, circa 1900.

Art Nouveau jewelers, always in search of "new and exotic" motifs, found inspiration in the beliefs and artifacts of distant and ancient cultures.  A lotus blossom rising above the murky water and muck of its environs is viewed in some Eastern philosophies as a symbol of purity and transcendence.  A sentiment beautifully captured in this finely crafted stickpin.

The reverse of the stickpin is as well crafted as the front.  The polished gold back is attached to the pin stem with a sturdy collet setting (photo below).  The Carter, Howe maker's mark is stamped on the upper left side of the pin stem with "14" for the purity of the gold. 

Cost:  $425

Measurements:  This 14kt gold stickpin is  2 3/8" long and weighs 1.5 grams.  The top measures  5/8" by 1/2".
