DESCRIPTION
An absolutely gorgeous Arts & Crafts period brooch. Beautifully handmade from copper and stylised as a sunflower, the petals are folded pieces of copper with the inners burnished to create a contrast of tones. The centre is wonderfully detailed, again using the burnished technique to highlight as seeds. It has a ‘C’ catch to the rear. Given this and that it is unstamped, most likely a one-off locally made piece, circa. late Victorian

‘Arts & Crafts Movement’

Dissatisfied with the rise of plain-looking and mass-produced items caused by the industrial revolution, the Arts and Crafts movement advocated the importance of decoration and beauty. In the second half of the 19th century, a group of people were discontent with what they thought was a deterioration of design and manufacturing. This resulted in the Arts & Crafts movement, whose representatives promoted handicraft instead of mass production. They advocated the idea that objects should be useful as well as beautifully decorated and that handicrafts should have the same status as fine art.
