Original Victorian Scottish Large Shoulder Brooch by R. & H.B. Kirkwood of Edinburgh

Item Description

Original Item: One of a Kind. This is just lovely, a larger Scottish "Shoulder Brooch" from the Victorian era, used to secure the tartan to the shoulder. This example is cast metal, and looks to be silver or some silver colored alloy. It has lovely embossed Celtic designs on the front, with a CROWN / X at the top. The rear is marked with the Scottish maker:


This is a known maker of these brooches during the late Victorian area, with many known examples. The brooch measures just over 3 inches in diameter, with a large pin on the back for attaching the tartan to the clothing. There is a hole in the center, and it does not look like it ever had a large stone installed in the middle. It is slightly curved or bent, though possibly that was done for a better fit. The rear is personalized, showing stylized initials A. D. at the top, with a number 26 at the bottom.

It has a lovely slightly oxidized patina, and a great look!
