Auguste Bonaz (1877 - 1922)
Bakelite Brooch from the Jazz Age, Circa 1920
Very Good original condition
Maison Bonaz was started around 1910 by César Bonaz, who founded his firm in Oyonnax, located in the east of France. At that time, they primarily created jewelry to be worn in the hair made of cut and carved horn. Auguste joined his father's firm, and pioneered in working with newly developed synthetic materials such as Bakelite. Despite their jewelry being made of non-precious materials, they exhibited at the 1925 exhibition Arts Décoratifs et Industriels on Paris, the exhibition that made Art Deco famous. Necklaces, brooches and bracelets by Bonaz were purchased by art collectors and dealers, like Ilyana Sonnabend and Andy Warhol and became today quite rare pieces to find.
