The Grammar of Ornament by Owen Jones (British, 18091874) was a major source and theoretical treatise for some of the most important artists and craftsmen of the late 19th century.
The Museum’s elegantly antiqued bracelet boasts a decorative pattern of lotus and palmette motifs, based on one of the Greek anthemion drawings illustrated in Owen Joness The Grammar of Ornament (British, 18091874). Palmettes are reflective of the Greeks’ respect for nature and regard for mathematical order and harmony. 24K gold overlay. Lightly antiqued. Made in the USA. Inner circumference: 7”; 1”W.
