Description

A solid sterling silver brooch featuring the Menzies tartan.


This brooch is one of a range I made between 2005 and 2007 - and I am selling off my entire remaining stock - at very advantageous prices! They were inspired by Mauchline or Tartanware - made in Ayrshire in the 19th Century.
The brooch is heavy, solid sterling silver and bears my own hallmark registered at the Edinburgh Assay Office. This brooch is of the largest size and has the double or 'waterfall' double edge to its circumference. The colour is NOT a deep, primary black, but a more subtle dark dark brown.
Also NOTE, importantly - this has been one of my most used display models and the back has a couple of very small/light scratches and ,again, very small dings to the outer silver edge. Please look/enlarge the photos of the back etc to see the condition of the brooch. It's still a handsome, striking piece of jewellery, but price is less than other models of the same size/specification.
Comes packaged in an elegant charcoal/cream linen presentation box.
Of course, this is a usable and practical item of jewellery, but the brooches are also very much collector's items and fine examples of Scottish silver.
The tartan is high definition, finished in a highly lustrous lacquer - achieved by a very intensive hands on process.
Unique specifics: Tartan = Menzies/ Width = 54mm,just over 2"/ total brooch weight = 45.2grams.
