This brooch is an inspired reproduction of a Mourning Victorian era.

The base of this brooch is a delicate hand in cream color made in Fun Fakelite, resin, holding a fantastic vintage iron flower.
The hand is a reproduction of true vintage brooch from my personal collection.
The flower is a true vintage piece found in a flea market and arranged and adapted for  this brooch.
Being vintage it can have small imperfections due to age.
A unique and original brooch made in very few pieces given its uniqueness due to the vintage detail.

Hand painted.

Finished with a pin in the back.

These sentimental jewels were very popular in Later Victorian Era and used the symbol of the female hand quite prevalently.
Hands depicted as holding flowers signify friendship and affection. If the flower is a forget-me-not, it is also associated with mourning and remembrance.
One of the more unique features of the hand is the cuff and the style that it is presented.
Many of the designs were standardised and set from a common mould, but the little embellishments to the cuff and any jewellery that may be on the fingers tells a tale of individuality and quality.

Total brooch with heart : 8.5cmx4.5cm
