News-Antique.com - May 16,2007 - The unusual glass oval in the ‘Nymph and Butterfly’ brooch designed by Shelley Cooper is a genuine antique element, probably created in the first decade of the 19th century, during the Art Nouveau period. It is an acid etched intaglio, back-filled with enamel to reveal the subject. The ‘nymph and butterfly’ image is an example of the sinuous, botanical lines, which characterized that dramatic, yet brief aesthetic. In Greek mythology the nymph is a minor nature goddess, depicted as a beautiful maiden and believed to inhabit the forest. Enjoy and care for this wonderful object as you would other antique jewelry. It may be worn as a brooch or perhaps a choker on a wide satin ribbon.
