This is a fine Scottish silver brooch - which was made by Ian MacCormick of Iona after an earlier 1930s design by Alexander Ritchie.
It is a vintage silver Celtic Revival penannular brooch.
This piece was made in the later 1940s from an earlier Ritchie design. It is marked on the back with MacCormick's initials and accreditation to it being made on the Island of Iona. MacCormick had been given permission to use Ritchies original moulds to make replicas of his designs in silver.
Dimensions: width is 3.5 cm. Height (not including pin) is 3.2 cm. The pin is 4 cm.
It is in good vintage condition and is all clean and shiny ready to wear.
The penannular brooch is of a more diminutive size - but it has been made by a highly collectable Scottish silversmith - and this is reflected in the asking price.
It will be sent in a simple little card gift box - a fair price for this nice piece of vintage Scottish jewellery - look great pinned on a little black cap or hat - or holding a dark scarf in place.
Free recorded postage in the UK.
