This brooch is based on the Tagetes patula- The French marigold is a member of the daisy family (Asteraceae) and originates in South Africa. The entire plant is harvested for its scent. In perfumes it is mixed with sandalwood to produce the fragrance ‘attar genda’. This brooch is inspired by a painting by Caroline Maria Applebee (c.1799-1854)- Very little is known about Miss Applebee, like so many female artists of the time. She was an extremely talented amateur artist whose works went unpublished. Her paintings feature a large range of plants and flowers, including many more rare and exotic varieties of the day that would only survive under glass.
