Celtic Penannular Style Pin with Glass Gems

Show your Celtic pride with this nicely detailed brooch, 1 1/8" x 1 3/8" (30mm x 35mm). It is silver tone, unmarked, with 3 glass gems This is a penannular style brooch, made to look like the fasteners worn on capes and shawls. In 6th to 8th century Ireland, the craftsmanship and ornamentation of a penannular brooch expressed the wearer's wealth and status.

The most famous penannular brooch is, of course, the famous Tara Brooch. I'm fairly sure this is an unsigned Miracle brooch - I've seen the identical design with the Miracle logo. Miracle, of Birmingham, England, made many brooches and other jewelry inspired by ancient Celtic and Viking designs. Very good condition.
