Elizabeth Blackwell Peony Brooch
Gift Wrap - Lobster£4.50

Calling all budding botanists! Discover the Elizabeth Blackwell Peony Brooch. Between 1737 and 1739, Elizabeth sketched, engraved and hand-coloured 500 illustrations to create 'A Curious Herbal', she was the first ever woman to do this. Influential and beautifully illustrated, this book of plants and their uses in medicine resides in the Chawton House Library collection. Inspired by these 18th-century illustrations, a blush red bloom has been laser cut in tessellating layers of glossy red acrylic, its petals flourishing from a single green stem, etched and hand-inked to mimic sketch-like strokes. Taking a visit to Chawton’s Walled Garden dedicated to Elizabeth’s work? This brooch is a must-wear!

This is a beautiful brooch; vivid colour, a great contemporary design based on the artwork of Elizabeth Blackwell, and it looks impressive. However, as I unpacked it to my disbelief the pin straight out of the fixing!
I planned to wear the next day so I carried out a repair using pliers. On contacting Tatty Devine I have been offered free postage to return to the workshop for further investigation so I am hopeful that I might have the brooch returned to me with a more secure pin.
Sadly not the quality I expect from an item of this value. Four stars for design etc and communication with the company.Was this helpful?
