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
a 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.
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.
