I believe this to be an old John Hart pin from Edinburgh Scotland as it has the thistle mark, the castle mark and a date mark which I cannot make out. (possibly a fancy style D) Marked on the top Scotland and on the bottom Iona I think that the JH has been rubbed off which if you look closely on the left of Scotland there appears to be feint indents to where the mark would be. The pin shape at the back and heavy patina lead me to believe this brooch is very old. Still in very good condition the pin closure works well and the front moss agate circle does not have any scratches or cracks that I can see or feel. It has slight wear to the front and none on the back of the stone. The brooch is 1 1/4" round with a celtic knot on each side and the center rounded moss agate stone is 1/2" round. The moss agate coloring of green and red is still bright when held up to the light. Very nice vintage Scottish brooch!
