An outstanding Celtic sterling pin with a gorgeous large moss agate cabochon.
The pin has a heavy, well detailed sterling frame of dimensional thistles, the national emblem of Scotland.
The six thistles alternate with leaves, the design is perfectly oxidized to accentuate the detail.
The moss agate is exceptional with vivid color in bands of green and orange "moss" alternating with milky translucent areas in the stone.
The cabochon is set with an open back so the light shines through, the bezel has a very fine millegraine edge.
The pin measures 1&3/8" in diameter, the moss agate measures 7/8" and has a height of .25" high, total weight of the pin is 13 grams.
Excellent condition, no damage or visible wear, secure safety catch and tube set pin stem, the lovely warm patina has been left unpolished.
Signed Iona with the co-joined JH hallmark of John Hart and silver.
A very fine example of John Hart (senior) Celtic sterling.
