Product Description

Rare Finds
One of a kind, vintage and antique pieces of Celtic Heritage and Historical content.
Special items that are unique and possibly not to be found elsewhere.
MIRACLE JEWELLERY
A leading jewellery design company specialising in Celtic, Scottish and Irish designs. The company originated in Birmingham, started by A. Hill and Company in 1946. Their creations were taken from Celtic history, Scottish agate jewellery, Charles Rennie MacKintosh designs and other historical inspiration. They used Sterling Silver or Pewter with reproductions of semi precious stones from bohemian glass. Miracle closed it's Birmingham operation in 2013 and was taken over by St.Justin of Cornwall. Their range at present is quite small and older pieces of Miracle that are no longer made are very collectable.
THE BOOK OF KELLS
The Book of Kells is now kept at Trinity College in Dublin. It contains the four Gospels and other writings in Latin. It was written on vellum (prepared calfskin) and illuminated with lavish decoration of plant, animal and human life plus amazing abstract decoration of Celtic knotwork and interlaced designs. It was possibly written in the early 800's by the Columban monks in the scriptorium of the Iona community which had originated in Argyllshire, Scotland in the 6th Century but escaped to Kells, County Meath, Ireland, after a Viking raid left 68 dead.
The book is regarded as a masterpiece of Celtic art and decoration.
