Brooches are not quite as popular as they once were, but I happen to adore them – especially novelty brooches with a sense of humor or whimsy. During the Victorian period, these particular brooches were quite popular and much in demand. From flowers and windmills to lanterns and animals, novelty jewelry greatly amused Victorians.

Thus, the brooch became the perfect means for which the jeweler could express these fashionable oddities. Alongside novelty jewels, sporting brooches were also popular, inspired largely by the leisurely pursuits enjoyed by the well to-do public: horse racing, hunting, fishing, skiing, and other popular activities of the day.

A number of these amusing, and often highly whimsical, brooches are available in the antique jewelry market. Miniature scenes that capture a glimpse of a bygone era, the following pieces are among my favorites.
