DESCRIPTION
This fabulous charm is the BEST rendition of the Tudor rose that we have encountered.The Tudor rose (sometimes called the English Rose) is a traditional heraldic emblem of England and takes its name and origins from the Tudor dynasty. When Henry Tudor took the crown of England from Richard III in battle, he brought about the end of the Wars of the Roses between the House of Lancaster (Red Rose) and the House of York (White Rose). His mother was Margaret Beaufort from the House of Lancaster, His father was Edmund Tudor from the House of Richmond; he married Elizabeth of York to bring all factions together. In so doing he created the Tudor rose, conjoining the White Rose of York and the Red Rose of Lancaster. In heraldry, the rose is depicted as white on red if placed on a field of a metal (gold or silver), or red on white if placed on a field of a colour, due to the rule of tincture.
The charm is large and beautifully enameled. It has wonderful detail and makes a fabulous memento of that special trip to England !
