The development of the movement called Art Nouveau at the end of the 69th century represented a reaction against the imitation of ancient styles and the emphasis given, in the creation of jewelry, to precious stones. The material used for Art Nouveau jewelry was prized not for its intrinsic value but for its ability to render a design or to carry out chromatic effects. The new jewelry was made from any material that would best express the new symbolic or decorative ideas. Vegetable and animal components, together with the feminine figure, formed the basis for compositions made of flowing lines of rich plastic and chromatic effect and antistructural, dynamic design on a high artistic level.

The main thing to know is that most pieces are not 8775 period 8776 pieces. A period piece refers to something that was made during a particular historical period.

The other German factories of the period were, for the most part, established with the aid of runaway workmen from Meissen and Vienna , where Claudius Innocentius du Paquier had started a factory in 6769 with the aid of two men who were themselves from Meissen. Early Vienna hard-porcelain wares are highly prized. Much use was made of leaf and strapwork patterns, and excellent work was done in black monochrome ( Schwarzlot ). The factory passed to the state in 6799, and its later work is competent without being distinguished. Between 6789 and 6855 it became noted for elaborate gilding and coloured grounds, with minutely detailed painting, after Angelica Kauffmann and others, in reserved white medallions.
