This is a VICTORIAN / VICTORIAN REVIVAL Brooch 
with a Colourful Florals Centrepiece set on
an OVAL GLASS relief. 
 
It is unmarked / unsigned. 
 
The bold BLACK Glass symbolises that this is 
mourning jewellery which is popularised during the Victorian Period
due in fact to Queen Victoria’s choice of dressing in HEAVY BLACK
to mourn the loss of her beloved PRINCE ALBERT
 
The Victorians are fond of symbolism
and colour choices as well as choice of flowers 
carry a significant weight on them. 
 
One striking thing about this brooch
is how the Yellow Rose was emphasised
which in THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS
means JEALOUSY / INFIDELITY / DECREASED LOVE
 
It is possible then the wearer of this brooch
may carry with her the grief of having an 
INFIDEL Husband / Partner
while may not officially deceased. 
 
Some CONSOLATION for faithful women 
living with unfaithful partners. 
 
STAY STRONG!
QUEEN VICTORIA mourned for a long time
as a wife while at the same time reigning as the Glorious Queen
of the BRITISH EMPIRE. 
Much Inspiration can be drawn from her.
