An American Art Nouveau 18 karat gold stick pin with enameling and opal by Marcus & Co. The stick pin has a cabochon opal surrounded with four enamel side sections decorated with gold relief arabesque designs. During the first decade of the Twentieth century the firm Marcus & Co. offered a variety of Revivalist-style jewelry. Egyptian-inspired pieces along with Renaissance Revival and Mughal style were created. The venerable firm of Marcus & Co. was established in 1892 by William, Herman and George Elder Marcus, with a shop in New York. The firm distinguished itself as an early proponent of the Art Nouveau style in America, of which this ring is an exquisite example. During the Art Deco period of the 1920's, the firm continued producing fine jewels in this new style and expanded with branches in London, Paris, and Palm Beach.
