This is a Genuine, Limited Edition S. Dupont Art Deco Keychain #174/1000. At the end of the 1910s, decorators sought to break away from the sinuous curves of Art Nouveau. They found many new sources of inspiration; traditional and contemporary, European and exotic. Thus differing styles such as African art and Neo-classicism provided the powerful momentum for a new decorative movement that saw the arabesques of Art Nouveau make way for pure, stylised lines.
Dupont offers a limited series inspired by the designs presented at the Decorative Arts exhibition held in Paris in April 1925. This unique lighter is created with resolutely modern forms, chased in gold with red and black Chinese lacquer. Dupont keychain and the extraordinary craftsmanship and precision engineering that goes in creating each S.
