Available in a choice of three colours this beautiful ceramic brooch is hand-made in Cornwall and features a rose motif taken from the unique Dillenius Collection inspired by the Hortus Elthamensis, which was published in 1732.

This very rare book describes exotic plants cultivated by the wealthy, early eighteenth-century apothecary James Sherard (1666-1738) at Eltham, Kent. It was written and illustrated by the German botanist Johann Jacob Dillenius (1684-1747) before he became the first Sheradian Professor of Botany at Oxford in 1734.
