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One of a kind, vintage and antique pieces of Celtic Heritage and Historical content.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.
TARGE
The Targe or shield was the primary means of defence for Scottish Highlanders. After their defeat at the battle of Culloden 1746 carrying a targe was banned by the English as was the wearing of the tartan.
