Description
Charming silver-plated and hand-enamelled brooch inspired by the popularity of forget-me-nots as a motif in the sentimental jewellery of the late Victorian period and based on a design from c,1890. Floriography, the language of flowers had been used in the early 17th century but in 1819, Louise Cortambert, under the pseudonym Madame Charlotte de la Tour, published what was likely the first dictionary of floral meanings, entitled 'Le Language des Fleurs'. The book was translated into English in 1820 and by the middle of the century couples, armed with floral dictionaries, exchanged small 'talking bouquets', called nosegays or tussie-mussies. By the late 19th century the fashion had extended to other keepsakes such as embroidered handkerchiefs and jewellery, a more enduring reflection of the sentiments expressed.
