Comment(s).

¹. Brooches were also worn several at a time. A photograph of Bella Elmore shows her wearing three at a low horizontal décolletage; a cluster, a coronet and a bar. Fashions in 1907 made this brooch is a necessity for anchoring the masses of falling lace on the corsage. At Ascot in 1909 it was noticed that the Queen wore several brooches among chiffon and lace trimmings of her gown. In ancient times brooches were nearly always functional, designed to fasten clothes together before buttons we invented. Similarly, in the late 19th century brooches were devised to fasten the lease fichu. Blouse pins were sold in sets of four; small gold safety pins with a flying swallow, or perhaps a tiny turquoise at the centre, all contained in a little lizard skin wallet (Peter Hinks, ‘Twentieth Century British Jewellery, 1900-1980’, 1983).
