Antique Scottish Pseudo-Penannular Shawl / Kilt Pin. The Penannular is a type of Celtic brooch worn as a clothes fastener by Scottish elites during the medieval period. During Queen VictoRia's reign, Scottish jewellery was made popular by her frequent visits to Balmoral Castle in the highlands of Scotland. Brooches were made to give the look of earlier pieces. Silver gallery with Celtic patterns.

Natural agates cut to fit the brooches shape. Scottish kite hallmark on back (too worn to identify maker and year). Pin latch may have been replaced.

Converted at some point as a belt buckle - Caused wear on hallmark. Small agate piece missing in "dagger" hilt - See photo for detail.
