Celtic Penannular Brooch, Cloak Pin
This lovely vintage penannular design was designed by Robert Allison. It is beautifully cast from the finest sterling silver; the penannular measures 1-5/8" (42mm) and the pin is 1-7/8" (48mm).
The very first brooches of this kind date back to the eighth century. The ancient Celtic people were the first to devise a way of pinning garments together. The Penannular or open ring brooch is among the most ancient of jewellery worn with articles of clothing.
This stunning penannular brooch is perfect for ladies' dress wear, on a sash at the shoulder, on a fine scarf or shawl, or on a kilted skirt (instead of a long pin). A timeless design for the millennium worn today as in centuries past.
