Description
Charming silver-plated and enamelled brooch inspired by an original piece from c.1900 and reflecting the popularity of this little bloom in the decorative arts of the mid-late 19th century. Buttercups symbolised 'radiant charm' in floriography, the language of flowers, which reached its peak in Victorian England. The symbolism of a wide variety of blooms was established and gifts of flowers in specific arrangements were used to send a coded messages to the recipient, allowing the sender to express feelings which could not be spoken aloud in Victorian society. Armed with floral dictionaries, Victorians often exchanged small 'talking bouquets', called nosegays or tussie-mussies and the fashion extended into other keepsakes such as embroidered handkerchiefs and jewellery.
