Japanese art became a major inspiration to artists and makers in the West following the forced re-opening of foreign trade with Japan in 1858. The origins of Art Nouveau in the decades to come can in many instances be traced back to this surge of artwork from the East. This pair of Shakudo fan earrings, circa 1880, is an exquisite example of the art form with a whimsical motif of life under the sea.

Measures - 6cm drop, 5.2cm wide
