This brooch has been based on a piece within the British Museum's collection, dating from c.1890, which is part of the Hull Grundy Gift. On the original piece, a spray of trembler-mounted dog-roses is set with Chrysoberyls. This piece is not marked, but is thought to be continental, with the use of the Chrysoberyls suggesting an Iberian origin. <br> <br> A <A HREF="http://www.britishmuseumshoponline.org/invt/cmcj39860" target="_blank" title="Select this link to view the matching necklace." class="linkarrow">matching necklace<span class="arrow"></span></A> is also available. <br> <br> Find out more about the original piece <A HREF="http://www.britishmuseum.org/research/collection_onlin e/collection_object_details.aspx? objectId=83373&partId=1&searchText=Chrysoberyls&page=1" target="_blank" title="Select this link to view the British Museum Collections page featuring the original piece." </A>here.</A>

Exclusive to the British Museum, a dazzling brooch inspired by roses in bloom.

The design of the brooch is based on an original French piece that is housed within the British Museum’s collection. The brooch, which dates to c.1890, is based on a spray of "rosa canina" dog-roses, which are pave-set with green chrysoberyl stones, and surrounded by delicately detailed gold-plated leaves. The brooch was part of the 1978 Hull Grundy gift, and showcases Anne Hull Grundy’s passion for Victorian botanical jewellery.

A sensational piece to add to a jewellery collection.
