Ada, 1903

We are thrilled to present to you a selection of Art Nouveau jewelry boxes from a lifelong collector.

In search of the rare and interesting, her collection comes to us from her travels around the globe, each box as lovely as the next.

With warm golden patinas more romantic with age and sure to have held many precious, sparkling treasures in time, this oh-so-pretty collection shares a common theme - they were all pieces of a collector's joy.

With the organic, sinuous curves of the lush Art Nouveau aesthetic, we are pleased to present this striking Art Nouveau Jewelry Box. Covered in floral detail and joyous cherubs, this piece is carefully engraved Ada, 1903. Lined with original ivory hued silken fabric, this evocative and storied find is at once wondrous and sweet, with a nature and story all its own. 

Fascinating and personal, we hope this jewelry box speaks to you much like it spoke to her and once to Ada - inspiring a final chapter of a long-awaited ending, beginning with you.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. 5 1/2" x 5 5/8". In good antique condition with signs of age and use, especially to the fabric lining. 

Learn More About Art Nouveau

The Art Nouveau Movement (1890 - 1910) began at a time of great awakening in the attitudes and behaviors of Victorian-era people. Attitudes towards women were transforming rapidly and the early suffrage movements for women were already beginning in England. Women were experiencing more financial and political control and were breaking away from their traditional roles as objects to be repressed, controlled or utilized.

Femininity and sensuality now became core cultural values and found their way into the art and design during this period. The newly liberated female form was given expression in art and was a popular motif with her long, flowing hair symbolizing all things feminine and carefree.

The most popular female motif was the face of a young woman in profile, but the female form was expressed in every way, fully nude or loosely clothed. Sometimes the woman would be presented with birds, flowers and insects; sometimes, as a hybrid creature. Regardless of the form she took, she would always be shown to be romantic and ethereal, with the sublime beauty and grace that is a beloved hallmark of the Art Nouveau Movement.
