Buckingham Palace Lily Brooch

Description

The Queen's Flame-Lily Brooch was a 21st birthday present to Princess Elizabeth from the schoolchildren of Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). It was designed by Len Ball of the Salisbury (Harare) jeweller, H.G. Bell, and made by the Cartier-trained jeweller Eric H.S. Kippin (1912-98) at Sidersky & Son in Johannesburg. The stones, which came from De Beers, were set by H. Michael. Two flame lilies were sent from Salisbury to Johannesburg to assist the craftsmen in realising Bell's design. The brooch was given to the Princess during her parents' tour of Southern Africa in 1947. In June 1953, two more brooches of this design, also made by Eric Kippin, were presented to Queen Elizabeth and Princess Margaret in Bulawayo, on Queen Elizabeth's first Commonwealth tour as Queen Mother. Queen Elizabeth's brooch was inherited by The Queen in 2002.

Set with sparkling crystals on white gold plated metal.

7 x 4 cm.
