Nicely designed Scottish thistle brooch signed RA for Robert Allison is hallmarked for 1956 and has the hallmarks for Edinburgh as well as two others which are difficult to read. Brooch is 1 5/8 inches across (4.1 cm) and has a large faceted orange colored glass stone which could represent the cairngorm, traditionally used in Scottish jewelry. There is a Celtic design around the open back frame and there is also the number 2 as part of the design. There is a simple non-locking clasp and pin stem which extends past the brooch. Weight is 19.4 g. Although I have not polished it, I have cleaned the brooch lightly to make the marks more visible. Please email with any questions, and thanks for visiting Splendors of the Past on Ruby Lane.
