Notes
Content : Title from folder.

Content : Printed on border: "The mode of attachment to the dress is of the usual design, but between the back of the brooch and the pin there is an ingeniously contrived tube and stilet, by which arrangement the stalk of a rose or other flower is securely held, passing through the butterfly, as shown. This novelty has been much appreciated, and makes a very pretty present. Price in gold £3 3 0. Price in silver gilt 1 1 0." "Richard A. Green, 82, Strand, W.C." Written on border: "Feb. 6, 1869" Includes additional text.
