Elegant antennae

Hair ornament by René Lalique, ca. 1900 || gold, silver, steel and diamonds

Insect elegance! This piece is so simple and so purely Art Nouveau. Je l'adore.

Wow, I'd love to see a photo/illustration of how a lady wore this piece-- wonder if it was for a costume or for a ball of some sort?
