Elisabeth Treskow, grape brooch, 1941. gold, diamonds, pearls. Schmuckmuseum Pforzheim, Germany.

The jewelry creations of Treskow are associated above all with the ancient technique of granulatoin, which had been largely forgotten in the modern age until goldsmiths rediscovered it. Treskow used granulation beginning in the 1930s, for motifs from ancient mythology and elements from the world of flora and fauna. This brooch in the form of grapes is one of her masterpieces in terms of both technique and form.
