Lovely sterling silver Scottish thistle brooch with an amethyst coloured stone. It is a nice, dark colour that sparkles in the light. It is foil backed which enhances its brilliance. There is an etched engraving edge around the pin with very detailed little flowers and acanthus leaves. It has a locking clasp that works perfectly. It measures 1 inch across and is marked STERLING SILVER on the back with initials that look like WB with vestiges of another letter that is unreadable. Excellent condition.
