Silver Luckenbooth brooch set with an oval Citrine. Edinburgh 1973/1974. Makers mark JA Luckenbooth brooches originated in 16th Century Edinburgh. They were given as love tokens or lucky charms for warding off witches, and sold in the locked - or 'lucken' - booths near St Giles Cathedral on the Royal Mile. These were small shops, which were in fact very tiny and could be securely locked at night. The Luckenbooth is one of the most romantic Scottish symbols of love, from the 17th century and often given as a token of betrothal, affection and friendship. It is usually in the shape of a heart or two entwined hearts, symbolizing love, with a crown, symbolizing loyalty, topping the heart(s). In addition, a couple may pin a Luckenbooth to their firstborn’s blanket as a good luck charm.
