TULIPA, lasered wood, hand colored.
In 1562 the first tulip bulb came from Turkey to Western-Europe. During the 17th century there was the so called ‘tulip mania’ in Holland. In those days tulips were very popular, even as a product for speculation. They became extremely expensive. In 1637 the whole tulip-trade collapsed; catastrophic for a lot of speculators. Nowadays tulips are still important for and associated with The Netherlands.
In yellow and red, fashionable to combine with TULIPA and BEHAVE lapel pins.
Because of the natural material and the hand coloring by the designer, Elleke van Gorsel herself, variations will occur and therefore all the items are unique.
Luxury gift packaging, a product card with unique number and in short the story behind the design, and an authenticity card are included when you order this TULIPA brooch through our webshop. So it becomes a pleasure to either receive or give away.
The TULIPA collection consists of earrings, brooches, pendants, tie pins/lapel pins.
