The Maple leaf is the emblem of Canada. It is implied that The Queen Mother, then Queen Elizabeth, received a maple leaf brooch from George VI before the couple toured Canada in 1939 - Although another version implies it was a gift during the tour of Canada. It was then given to her daughter, our Queen in 1951. The Queen has since lent it to The Duchess of Cornwall and Duchess of Cambridge on their first trips to Canada.
23ct triple gold plate, Swarovski crystal and faux pearl, 7.62 cm x 5.08 cm
