Neoclassical Inverted Bell Alabaster Pendant



In architecture, the inverted bell became popularly used after its introduction in the shape of the capitals of Corinthian columns. This geometric style persists throughout neoclassical design. This later piece, is less ornate, illustrating the transition in style towards the Art Nouveau movement (which favored clean lines over detailed carvings).
