A highly collectible sterling silver penannular pin by sought after Scottish silversmiths Henderson & Horner Brothers who were only active between 1935 and 1962 so their pieces are rare and hard to find. The brooch bares historic assay marks for Glasgow 1941. The assay office in Glasgow closed in 1964 resulting in these hallmarks becoming particularly desirable.

The brooch is a fairly large size with lots of presence. It is decorated in a striking ancient Celtic pattern with lots of detailing and texturing to the silver, the high points are bright polished with the low points oxidised to a deep dark grey which adds even more appeal. It features an open ring with a long sharp pin attached to a decorated head that moves around the ring to fasten it. It is crafted in very heavy gauge silver and will secure and gather the heaviest of fabrics.

A timeless and very collectible piece of traditional Scottish jewelry, only 2 decades away from being a true 100 year old antique!

Penannular pins date back to antiquity and are a traditional and way of fastening plaids and tartans. Typically they are worn by both men and women, usually singly at the shoulder by men and on the breast by women.
