Sold

In the early nineteenth century there was a passion for flowers. Explorers were bringing back new specimens from far flung places and writing about their discoveries. This example is an enchanting late Georgian botanical brooch, consisting of green gold leaves, finely chased and engraved, and two roses carved in pink coral with gold stamens, and two rose buds. Similar pieces like this can be found in the Hull Grundy collection at The British Museum.
