Vintage Mid Century Celtic Knot Silver & Moss Agate Brooch c.1940
Ref: CA2029 / LA90710
This nice little brooch is manufacture in .925 Sterling silver and set with a natural moss agate semi precious stone.
The item has 5 lobes or petals to the outer edge and each of these has an interlocking Celtic knot pattern in raised detail - to the centre is the moss agate stone which is almost clear but also has green and some orange inclusions.
To the rear of the item is a hinged pin and a rollover safety clasp - the only marks to the reverse is the embossed mark 'SILVER'.
I acquired this brooch along with some other Celtic style Iona brooches that date from the 1940's and 1950's - all were owned by the same person and purchased in the same era - the style and type of clasp would certainly suggest a manufacture period of the 40's or 50's.
The brooch measures approximately 3cm across and has an unpacked weight of 5.1g.
This is a very nice piece of vintage jewellery and certainly very wearable, particularly if you have Celtic ancestry and want to celebrate your heritage.
Width : 30 mm - 1.18 in
