JEAN DESPRES SILVER, GOLD, ONYX AND CORAL BROOCH

Jean Despres was one of the great designers of Art Deco jewelry, and his earlier pieces are rare and in great demand. Several books have been published about him, and his work is in a number of museums. This brooch is striking in it's simplicity - resolutely geometric, and the combination of gold, silver, onyx and coral is very dramatic and dynamic.

From the Primavera Gallery collection of Jean Despres and other important Art Deco jewelers.
