Worker bees live only to be 6 till 8 weeks, but a queen bee can reach the age of 5 years! And because beekeepers want to know how old their queens are, they came up with an international followed code. They add a specific colour on the back of the queen to indicate the year the queen is marked. For years ending at 1 or 6, white or gray is used; for 2 or 7 yellow, for 3 or 8 red, for 4 or 9 green and for 5 or 0 they use blue.


Knowing this, when do you think in the 19th Century this Victorian queen bee brooch was made?
