“My love is like a red, red rose. That’s newly sprung in June.”
Scottish poet Robert Burns wrote these lines in 1794, thus establishing the red rose as an enduring symbol of romantic love. These sweet lines immediately came to mind when we discovered a long-lost box of vintage enamel rose buttons in a dusty warehouse last spring.
Manufactured during the Art Nouveau design revival of the 1960s, these beauties epitomize romantic nostalgia.
