Here is a truly fine example of a kilt pin known as a dirk. The dirk was actually a form of hunting knife worn at the waist. They were reproduced using the exact details of the originals and may have been set in either silver or gold. Finding a fine example in gold would be at the top of the price range.

T his example is set in sterling silver with fine engraving on the silver. The citrene stones vary in size. they are collet mounted and secure in their mountings. The agate stones are the soft grey color and are striated. It is believed they originated in the Montrose area of Scotland.

The brooch measures 4 inches in length. it is one of the larger ones we will be showing. it weighs 21.2 grams. The pin and the clasp are original. The silver has not been polished. That is a matter of choice for the new owner. The quality of workmanship in the cutting and setting of the stones is excellent.
