From the Bicycle History Series of brooches by Carl&Rose
The Penny Farthing is an early type of bicycle that was the apex of cool in its day, the later 19th century. Don’t let its sweet design fool you—these were “boneshakers” not for the faint of heart. Well-known dangers associated with riding these machines made them a fairly short-lived invention eventually replaced by the modern styled ‘safety’ bicycle.
You’re never fully dressed without a smile…and a bicycle brooch! Pin one of these on a lapel, a bag, a dress or anywhere you want to show off your love of mankind’s greatest invention, and your unique style. Each brooch is made of stainless steel, hand polished and finished with a sterling silver pin back. Made in Toronto.
