A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE LAPEL PIN / BROOCHbySusan D Sharp
We wear lapel pins and brooches, but have you ever wondered why or what the difference is between the two?
When we consider pins we have to go all the way back to 1800 BC and look at the Egyptians who are credited with the first pins.The Egyptians created a process of inlay and enameling where they soldered wire together to creative filigree work.
Then 600 years later the Grecians developed an enameling process to fill in the spaces between the filigree work.
Eventually by 1200 AD lapel pins evolved out of cloisonné items like hair pins, jewelry and decorative housewares. These were developed in the Byzantine empire in the near east.
Our current floral pins may have originated from boutonnieres which were popular for men in the 16th century England.That hole in lapel of men’s suits was designed to hold a fresh flower which was believed to ward off bad luck. Tailors still include the hole in suit jacket lapels though few have known its purpose.Jeweled pins, watch chains and cigar cases were also popular as everyday attire for English men.
16th century Italians wore a form of a brooch called enseigne on brim of hats to represent a successful pilgrimage. They also included a charm for protection after visiting a shrine.They can also represent rank within a group such as military insignia or to denote affiliation to sector of society.
During America’s civil war, soldiers wore small brass pin with their number on it and it helped soldiers to stay with their unit.It provided camaraderie too.This evolved into decorating military personnel for brave acts.Richard Nixon made wearing a lapel pin standard for US Presidents and they all have followed suit since.
How Do Pins Differ From Brooches?
Lapel pins are actually brooches, though a brooch may actually have a function like a clothes fastener or to clip things together as in lengths of a scarf. Brooches and lapel pins were generally made of metal as in the classic cameo or diamond brooches, but modern brooches and pins emulate the English boutonnieretrend of the 16th century and now we see felt and fabric pins of all kinds from funny animals to very realistic looking flowers. And pins have gone from largely being a male fashion accessory to largely being a female fashion accessory. And we see pins migrating from lapel to backpacks, hats, and scarves, back of jackets and even on shoes.
Today they are largely a fashion accessory and come in a wide variety of styles from floral lapel pins that mimic a boutonniere, badge pins to show affiliation, collar pins for on either side of a time or even customized lapel pins.
My next line of pins coming in 2021 will not only have form but I’m going to take pins and brooches into the practical realm offering functional aspects to them as well.
