A very pretty Art Nouveau tie pin made by the process of “Fixe”. This process of high quality hot gold foil laminating onto brass was first created in France in the early 19th century by a young Paris jeweller called Francois Savard. His process used an unusually thick layer of 18ct or 14ct gold foil over brass to form jewellery which would withstand long term wear and be easily mistaken for real gold. Auguste Savard took over the company in 1893. He registered the unique trade mark FIX with the authorities to identify his products as a high quality range of affordable jewellery. He engaged top rate art nouveau designers to design pieces such as Emile Dropsy, Tairac and Becker to name but a few. At the height of production the Savard FIX company employed 300 people. This tie pin is a good example of what he produced. All our tie pins come with a stopper at the end of the pin.
