Antique Unger Bros Art Nouveau Watch Fob Sterling

$ 680.00

In the bustling city of Newark, New Jersey, during the vibrant Art Nouveau era, the renowned Unger Brothers workshop stood as a beacon of silver craftsmanship. Among their celebrated creations was a watch fob, a testament to their skill and artistry, steeped in the essence of the age.

Crafted meticulously from polished silver, the fob bears the distinctive mark of Unger Brothers' craftsmanship. At its core, two elegant links showcase Art Nouveau women, their flowing forms intricately intertwined with sinuous vines and delicate blooms, their gazes imbued with a captivating allure.

Adorning either side of these captivating figures are ornately design links, each a testament to the intricate beauty of the Art Nouveau style. From these links gracefully dangles a heart-shaped medallion, the pièce de résistance of the fob's enchanting design. Within the heart, a woman emerges, surrounded by swirling clouds and twinkling stars, her presence evoking a sense of ethereal beauty and timeless romance.

Measuring twelve inches in length, the fob holds a heart of 29mm in diameter and weighs a substantial 32.4 grams, showcasing the solidity and quality of its construction. It is marked on the reverse with Sterling and the Unger Brothers makers mark. The belt clasp with its "P" inscription is not sterling but silver plate and is marked with 'Hickok Beltogram' and 'Hickock Plate', it is not part of the original fob, but as I purchased it this way, I have left it attached. Made in about 1915-1920.
