The Duchess of Teck’s Flower Brooch was probably inherited by Princess Mary Adelaide, Duchess of Teck, from her aunt, Princess Mary, Duchess of Gloucester. When the Duchess of Teck died, it was given to her eldest son, Prince Adolphus, but by 1923, it was in the possession of his sister, Queen Mary.1

The brooch was “formed as a cluster of brilliant flowers and leaves in cut-down open-back settings, partly pavé-set, suspending four detachable pear-shaped drops on rose-set chains.

That same year, Queen Mary gave it to her future daughter-in-law, Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, who married the then Duke of York. Elizabeth wore it frequently, and it was inherited by her eldest daughter, Queen Elizabeth II, in 2002.
