Footnotes

  • The renowned French jewellery firm of Fouquet was founded in 1862 by Alphonse Fouquet, one of the pioneers of Renaissance revival jewellery.

    Alphonse's son Georges took over management of the firm in 1895 and soon became an important designer of iconic fine jewellery which broke away from the conventional design of the late 19th and early 20th century.

    During the first decade of the 1900's Fouquet became renowned for his Art Noveau designs and he was considered to be on par with Lalique. He surrounded himself with the greatest artists of the time and, as a result, he worked in collaboration with the decorative artist Alphonse Mucha. Together they won the gold medal for their wonderful creations at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1900.

    Georges Fouquet was one of the only handful of jewellers linked to both the Art Noveau and Art Deco movements which further exemplifies him as an innovator, a pioneer and a creator of unique and exceptional fine jewellery.
