Beautifully detailed antique Victorian gold filled cuffs with a wheat design. In the 19th century there was a lot of anxiety related to the Industrial Revolution and a move away from rural, agrarian life. Ripe wheat stalks became a frequent embellishment on clothing and accessories as wheat is associated with nourishment and thus the perpetuation of people and their progress toward development and urbanization. Wheat is also closely associated with women and their bounty and fertility due to the shared ability to perpetuate our species.
