Large 3 1/2" Edwardian Scottish Agate Dirk Kilt Pin Brooch Silver & Jasper For Sale

Large 3 1/2

Scottish Agate Dirk………..

Wonderful good sized Scottish Agate Dirk or Kilt pin made from Silver and red and green Jasper Agates.

I love the pierced & engraved basket hilt guard that lets the red jasper show through.

Made from silver but unmarked – I have tested it with acid and tests show silver.

Size is: 3 3/8th” (8.5cm) long

In excellent condition – historical replacement of C catch to more secure roll-over catch.

Scottish Agate or Pebble Jewellery was made popular by Queen Victoria. When she travelled to the Highlands with Prince Albert she fell in love with the dramatic landscape and went on to purchase Balmoral, the rest as they say is history. This love extended to all things Scottish and when the London papers reported that the couple were wearing “polished pebble brooches made from local stones” it set a trend that would last for decades and even spread to Europe.

Written examples of this sweeping fashion are to be seen in the novel written by Elizabeth Gaskell in her novel Cranford (1851) set in the Cheshire village of Knutsford where one of the characters – Miss Pole was wearing no less than 7 Scottish pebble brooches!
