This brooch showcases an uncommonly beautiful antique porcelain button featuring a red rose and blue forget-me-nots. 

In Floriography or the Victorian language of flowers, forget-me-nots symbolize enduring love, and roses are a universal symbol of romantic love. Boldly expressing your feelings wasn't socially acceptable in Victorian-era England. Much like modern teenagers with emojis, Victorians expressed their feelings with flowers.

Emaux peints means painting images with enamel. This process applies a solid color base via several firings, and then the design is painted on top with enamel paste.

The crystal border adds lovely bling to the sweet blooms on this button, while a large mother of pearl base contributes subtle luster.

In this piece:

  • Emaux peints enamel button with crystal border, made in France, circa 1880-1890
  • Large mother-of-pearl button with luster, circa 1920
  • 1 ½” in diameter
