Consuelo Vanderbilt: “American Heiress” and Duchess of Marlborough

Being a Gilded Age 'heiress', meant being painted by Sargent + having a Fifth Avenue house as a wedding present in addition to having a country place. It meant handsome jewels, a box at the opera + travel abroad. It meant being able to provide such nice things for one's children + the reasonable expectation that none of one's legates could likely ever be so profligate, that any of one's descendants might ever come to be in want.

Princess Elizabeth celebrated her 21st birthday abroad, touring southern Africa with her parents and sister. This brooch was one of her birthday presents, a gift from 42,000 children in Southern Rhodesia. The schoolchildren were asked to donate a bit of pocket money each to contribute to the creation of this 301 diamond-strong platinum piece in the shape of a flame lily, a national flower.
