The Story of English Silver Brooches 1880-1918

£24.99

Product description

Slim paperback book in a very good condition. Undated but c 2007. Pages very good. Fully illustrated throughout. A rare book.

A fascinating account of the brooch as worn by women for thousands of years. Around 1880 jewellery began to be produced using small factory line techniques which led to a surge in production and availability. The Victorian age lead to brooches being produced in many forms and for many purposes. A large section of the book is devoted to the production of sweetheart brooches during the Boer war and WW1.

A book for any jewellery enthusiast.
