Art noveau

I've been spending a lot time in research of the epoch Art Noveau lately
and it's a grand time for design and architecture.

I recently found this fascinating story about Georg Jensen, 
the danish silversmith and his jardinière, designed in 1926
but remained a sketch until 2012 when it was found in the archives. 
With more than 900 hrs of craftswork this fruit bowl in sterling silver represents
 a truly unique and magical piece of Art Noveau performed 86 years later.
