Orange Leaf Brooch
The Orange Collection has been developed in collaboration with the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
It was inspired by the V&A’s Green Dining Room, the world’s first museum café, and its fruit panels designed by the firm Morris, Marshall, Faulkner and Co. in 1886. William Morris was a major influence on the Arts and Crafts Movement, which adopted many of his ideals on the value of hand craftsmanship and the maintenance of truth and honesty in the materials of production. His medieval-inspired designs are noted for their remarkable renderings of interweaving flora and fauna, especially fruits and birds. The designs demonstrate depth of tones, richness in colours and graduation of tints.
Materials: Hand patinated bronze with hand-formed glass and freshwater pearl. Accents of gold and matte silver plate.
