From courtship to mourning the lady's hand was a very popular image used in many aspects of Victorian social life. The beauty of this hand is the the hidden message it literally carries within - a hand holding a rose symbolizes love.
Victorians mastered a secret language, called Floriography in which each flower was given a unique meaning and hidden messages could be transmitted to the recipient of a beautiful bouquet.
