AN ANEMONE AS A WORK OF ART

In 1902 a Japanese anemone was designed on a Belle Epoque bottle – an icon which would soar to grandeur over the years.

In the early 1900s, the Art Nouveau movement burst into life, drawing its inspiration from the lines and movements of nature, inviting beauty and poetry into daily life. Its values echoed those of the House of Perrier-Jouët.
The artist and master glass maker Emile Gallé was one of the movement's pioneers.

It was in 1902 that he designed the iconic anemone wreathed in gold that would be placed on the bottle of the first Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque vintage in 1964, turning it into a work of art. And thus was born the partnership between Art Nouveau and the House. A history which continues to unfurl to this day.
