This beautiful Antique Scottish Plaid Agate brooch in lovely shape comes mounted on a Silver back, engraved around stones. It is not marked tested as sterling silver. Likely it was produced in the Victorian era, circa 1860. Scottish jewellery grew in popularity in the mid- 1800s as Queen Victoria’s frequent trips to her Scottish Castle Balmoral saw her return with Scottish souvenirs and jewellery which influenced the trend in Britain. The brooch is not big, quite cute like ladies brooch, beautiful piece with wonderful colour and character, and portrays the skilled workmanship of the time.

good condition for age, but one green stone has crack/ hair line that appeares on the top, but it is not too noticable. The stone placed solid to the silver base of the brooch,it doesn't move. The silver has tarnish from age.
