From the Bicycle History Series of brooches by Carl&Rose

The velocipede looks like a bicycle from the future, but in fact it’s from the earliest days of human-powered wheeling. These “swiftwalkers” were not made for a casual sunday stroll. Pedal less and mostly wooden velocipedes were prized by the upper ranks.

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.
