ANTIQUE EDWARDIAN BLUE PASTE FORGET ME NOT TRILOGY BROOCH SILVER CIRCA 1905
A delightful Antique Edwardian brooch fashioned in Silver depicting a trilogy of Forget me nots decorated with sparkling old cut white Paste Stones with gorgeous sapphire blue Paste petals.
Forget me nots in an old German tale were discovered by two lovers walking by a river one day. After picking a beautiful bouquet of blue flowers for his loved one the poor gentleman sadly fell in the river and was swept away but before he vanished he yelled out ‘Forget-me-not!’ giving the flowers their name and a long lasting symbolism of love and remembrance.
It is very sweet brooch and would make a wonderful gift from a loved one.
