These grouse claws are a part of Scottish tradition. Grouse are edible but hunting is strictly curtailed to a certain time of year. The story is the landowner gave one of these to his bride on their wedding day - hence the little ring on each and every one I have ever had. This stone is an amethyst and there is also one in the little ring. The claw is in excellent condition with hallmarks dating it to the year 1912, the silversmith being William Henry Leather. Measures 3 3/4 inches long with a C clasp as in antique jewelry. Note to engraving on the silver mount. These would be worn on jackets, or some prefer to use on the kilt.
