Victorian Scotch Agate Brooch / Pin - Grey Agate & Sterling / Thistle
Here's a nice good size Victorian Scotch Agate Brooch made in Scotland around 1880. The Scots made a lot of agate jewelry in the mid to late 19th century and they used local stones. Sometimes the jewelry was called Scotch Pebble Jewelry. Here's a nice example using grey agate and sterling silver. The clasp has the typical "c" clasp that was used in the 19th century. There's a loop on the top of the back to hold a safety chain if one wishes. The brooch is 2" in diameter and has a substantial thickness to it. In the center is a die cut thistle - the regional flower of Scotland. Around the edge is intricate engraving in the silver. The condition is very good. There are some very minor issues like a little work was done on the back hinge at some point and there is a tiny bit of solder showing. The overall impression is very good as the photos show. I've tried to make the price very fair in case the buyer is a thrifty Scot.
Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: Grey and Silver, Size: 2" in diameter
