The Argentia Art Nouveau Woman 10 oz Silver Bar is an homage to the Art Nouveau style popular from 1890 to 1910. This style of art featured long flowing lines. This design is all about long flowing lines as they depict a nude woman standing in the forefront with her long hair flowing all around her. She is covering herself in an attempt at modesty. Her hair is impossibly long and full and fills the entire background. The antique finish accentuates the lines and gives them a sharper contrast.

The obverse side of the bar has a design that is done in the Art Nouveau style. The Art Nouveau style was famous for its long flowing lines. The subject of this design is a nude woman with her hair flowing wildly behind her. She is covering herself for modesty and her impossibly long and full hair billows out behind her. It fills the entire background of the picture. The antique finish adds to the contouring and brings out the shadows in the design.
On the reverse side of the bar are design elements that are very much like the meander art designs prevalent in ancient Greek art. In the middle of the bar is the Argentia mint’s logo. Below this is ‘10 oz FINE SILVER’.
The shape of the bar is a rough-hewn imperfect shape that is reminiscent of the marble slabs used in ancient times by sculptors.
