deco emerald tree brooch
It shows the very strong Indian influence on deco design at at a time when the Indian Maharajahs were bringing their ancestral jewels to Europe to be reset in the latest fashion. Jewellers were strongly influenced by the colourful Indian gems, and also by Chinoiserie, Assyrian and above all Egyptian revival, inspired by the discovery of Tutankhamun''s tomb in 1923.
The brooch is 2 1/4 inches: 58 mm in height
