Floriography is a wonderful term for the Language of Flowers, a discreet form of communication used in Victorian times.

Inspired by vintage greeting cards and botanical illustrations, Floriography celebrates a nostalgia for the romance of the Victorian era with a contemporary interpretation.

Imagine being able to communicate through the age old language of flowers. The Victorians created a cultural phenomena which we are proud to continue. Perfect pieces that say "I Love You", "You are a Great Friend" and many more.

All of the pieces on our site are made from brass components that are produced domestically from antique tools, which are soldered and hand-painted. Each of these pieces is a work of love and we hope you cherish them as much as we do.

As for the poppy, the general Victorian meanings are imagination and eternal sleep. But this would actually change depending on the color of the poppy that was given since there are a lot of color varieties for the poppy. For example, the red poppies mean pleasure, white poppies means consolation and yellow poppies on the other hand represents success.

For war veterans, the poppy is used to honor their lost brothers who bravely risked their lives in the battlefield. This originated during the Napoleonic wars where poppies bloomed in the Flanders Field. It is believed that the blood of the soldiers had caused the red poppies to bloom - and some took it as a sign that finally the war is over.
