Product Description

HISTORY

This brooch is based on the pennanular brooches the Celts, Vikings and Anglo-Saxons used as cloak fasteners. Pennanular means incomplete circle which allows the pin fastener.

This type of fastening goes back to the Iron-age but in Scotland and Ireland in the 8th and 9th Centuries beautiful highly ornate brooches were made from precious metals and semi-precious stones. Excellent examples are the Tara brooch in the National Museum of Ireland, Dublin and the Hunterston brooch in the National Museum of Scotland, Ebinburgh.
