ATTRIBUTED TO HENRY WILSON

Arts & Crafts Nightingale Brooch

Silver, enamel & pearl

Origin British, c. 1900
Case Fitted Case

This brooch is attributed to Henry Wilson. It is similar to a pendant in Wilson's book Silverwork and Jewellery page 126, fig.68. 'you may either read "The Romaunt of the Rose" and take thence whatever suggestion most appeals to you, or you may prefer to put a nightimgale singing in the middle of a bower of leaves (fig.68). THe latter will be the least difficult, as the former supposes a knowledge of the figure, though you might make a little gateway with towers to the garden of the Rose, which could be made very interesting.'
