An old mauve artifact could be a relic from the nineteenth century, when the color mauve was first discovered and became a fashion sensation.
Mauve is a pale purple color named after the mallow flower (French: mauve).
It was the result of an accidental experiment by a young chemist named William Henry Perkin, who was trying to synthesize quinine, a drug used to treat malaria.
Instead of quinine, he obtained a substance with a purplish hue, which turned out to be the world's first synthetic dye.
He patented his invention in 1856 and started to market it as a replacement for the expensive natural dyes that were used at the time.

Perkin's mauve was a huge success, especially among the artistic and progressive circles of Europe and the US.
The color was seen as a symbol of modernity, elegance and innovation.
It was worn by Queen Victoria, Empress Eugenie and other celebrities of the era.
However, the fame of mauve was short-lived, as it faded easily and was soon replaced by other synthetic dyes.
As the original dye became rare, the contemporary understanding of mauve changed to a lighter and less saturated color than it was originally known.

Therefore, an old mauve artifact could be a piece of clothing, a painting, a book or a decoration that was made with Perkin's original dye in the nineteenth century.
It could be a valuable and rare item that reflects the history of chemistry, fashion and culture.
It could also be a reminder of the power of serendipity and creativity in science and art.
