Robert Allison Sterling Silver & Moss Agate Celtic Scottish Thistle Brooch Fully Hallmarked

79.95 GBP
Moss Agate Sterling Silver Thistle Brooch Robert Allison Mid Century Scottish Jewelry Glasgow Collectible Coat Pin Celtic Brooch Scotland Traditional Style Natural Stone Pebble Jewellery

This lovely and highly collectible Scottish thistle moss agate brooch was made by the famous silversmith Robert Allison of Glasgow and the Hallmarks on the piece date it to 1957.

The brooch belonged to my mother, who received it as a gift from her brother when he holidayed to Scotland to attend the Highland Games.
The central stone is a beautiful polished Moss Agate which is translucent showing intricate markings in shades of deep forest green and burnt orange , it is surrounded by thistle flowers and leaves going around the edge in a heavy sterling silver setting .
The brooch is in good condition and is pretty clean, just showing usual signs of patina in the dips and grooves of the design- I have not cleaned it just buffed it with a cloth, as I prefer to leave vintage jewellery with its own signs of a good life lived. The brooch is in great condition- I can see only very minor markings to the surface when viewed carefully, the stone is secure and the roll-locking clasp is in good working order.
Please see all photographs for close ups and other angles and packaging examples- please bear in mind that these photos are extreme close ups so will show any surface marks very clearly that are not immediately visible to the naked eye .

It measures approx 5 cm. x 4.2 cm. ( 1.97 ins. x 1.65 ins. )

Box shown is for illustrative purposes only, but your brooch will come nicely packaged and ready to present as a gift.

This beautiful brooch would make a lovely treat for someone who is a collector of Scottish, Celtic or Robert Allison jewellery and also for lovers of vintage Agate
stone , as this is a particularly lovely example.
