Fallen Poppy Petal Brooch
The languid poppy, bringer of sleep and symbol of the imagination, was a favourite motif of Art Nouveau, which was in turn a major influence on Fabergé’s repertoire of themes. In Persian literature it symbolises eternal love. Here, as part of the Fleurs de Fabergé series of fallen petal brooches, the poppy petal, in a rippling heart shape sculpted in gold and silver, shimmers with an intriguing blend of pastel shades of yellow, pink and violet diamonds, grass green demantoid garnets and opals.
