Willow Catkins Pearl Brooch from The Met Museum


Our nature-inspired brooch in 18K gold plate displays a row of lustrous freshwater pearls. It celebrates a handsome ceramic vase in The Met collection decorated with a charming motif of willow catkins. Louis C. Tiffany was moved to produce ceramics after seeing examples of French art pottery at the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris. Many of his pottery vases derived their forms from common wildflowers and water plants as seen in their natural habitats-ferns, lilies, cattails, jack-in-the-pulpits, and toadstools.
