This is a vintage Celtic Robert Allison sterling silver and gemstone pin or brooch. This beautiful shield or targe brooch features five stunning gemstones in an ornate open frame with Celtic designs. The back is hallmarked with the thistle of Scotland, the castle of Edinburgh and a date letter that I can't make out.

This handsome piece measures 1 5/8 across and weighs 14 grams on my little scale. It is in very good condition, with normal signs of use and some tarnish.There are no dings, dents or bends, and the stones have no problems to report.
