Charlotte Isabelle Newman, jewellery from an album of 1,593 designs, 1848-84. Made by John Brogden, London. 1848-84
The Designs demonstrate the resourcefulness which made Newman indispensable to Brogden and also later led her to become the first woman artist-jeweller in late Victorian London. Newman trained at the Government Art School in South Kensington before joining the Brogden firm as a designer, probably in the mid-1860s.
