This beautiful pewter brooch was designed and made in Scotland. The original designer of this brooch says, "The design of this brooch is inspired by the Battersea Shield, considered to be one of the finest pieces of Celtic Art to have survived from the Iron Age. Dredged from the Thames in 1857, it is assumed to date from sometime between 350 and 50BC - before the Romans first came to Britain. You can read our feature on the Battersea shield here. Our designer, Elidh, based this brooch on the shield, to give it the essence of that early Celtic feel. Brooches with large movable central pins were near universal as garment fasteners in the Iron Age, although the design was heartily adopted and elaborated by the peoples of Scotland and Ireland in the centuries between 700 and 900AD. ". This brooch will look absolutely amazing with your fly plaid, shawl, or other garment.
