Description

Poured Glass Coral Flower Pin

This beautiful coral glass flower pin with green leaves is made using a poured glass technique. Poured glass jewelry, also known as pâte de verre, was created in France in the late 1800s and has been used by almost all of the great fashion houses. It takes many hours to create just one piece, but it is well worth the effort. The feel and look is so elegant and truly one of the greatest techniques created for fashion jewelry.

This coral pin is reflective of the many costume jewelry pieces on stage at the Metropolitan Opera.

History

Met Costumes

All costumes and jewelry seen at the Met are unique works of art. The company puts on an average of 25 operas every year, with as many as 200 individual costumes featured in each of them, and works with some of world’s greatest costume designers to create unique pieces for an average of six or seven new productions per season. Everything is handmade in the Met’s own workshops, and many costumes and jewelry items from past productions, all the way back to the 1880s, are preserved in the Met Archives.
