Antique brooch made in Scotland circa 1880. A classic, elegant example of the intricately crafted Scottish jewelry from this era. These pins are known as pebble brooches because they feature various regional stones. Pebble brooches are always unique though there are some commonalities to the designs and themes. Expertly handcrafted sterling silver three dimensional design consisting a four leaf clover surrounded by a an abstract flower shape. The inlaid stones are gray banded agate from Montrose. The silver is intricately engraved. Montrose agate is perhaps the most beautiful and serene of all the Scottish stones with a color that is referred to as'dove' gray, an apt and poetic term to describe the color in these stones with fine bands and variations reminiscent of the delicate patterns of bird feathers. This brooch has no hallmarks which is quite common from this time but it had been tested and is sterling silver. Lovely antique condition with stones firmly set in place and some and the original C-clasp which is in good working order. Diameter: Approximately 1-3/4 (4.4 cm). Antique and vintage merchandise may have some degree of visible wear and/or patina. This is considered quite normal and can be a part of the overall appeal and charm. I do my best to mention any specific condition issues. All items are described to the best of my knowledge. My jewelry items arrive attractively packaged and ready for gifting.
