<p>This brooch has been inspired by the heart-shaped brooch which was found at the Fishpool Hoard. It is thought to have been deposited some time between winter 1463 and summer 1464, during a rebellion against the Yorkist king Edward IV (reigned 1460-83) on behalf of the Lancastrian Henry VI, in the first decade of the Wars of the Roses (1455-85). <br /> <br /> This modern brooch remains faithful to the original design of the brooch in the hoard, which was embellished with twisted bands set within a beaded border and alternately enamelled in blue and white. There is a modern pin at the back and the brooch is stamped "BM".</p>

Exclusive to the British Museum, a gold-plated heart-shaped brooch, inspired by an original that was found as part of the Fishpool Hoard, now housed at the Museum.
