A stunning Scottish agate kilt pin from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This gorgeous piece is made of sterling silver and portrays the shape of a large, spear-shaped pin. The piece, which has a 3-dimensional look, is detailed with 3 pieces of Scottish agate which vary in color and shape. Each is inlaid within the sterling setting and include banded and moss agate, and what appears to be a yellow-toned banded agate. The pin has wonderful etched sterling accents that cap the bottom and top and rest at the center of the piece, securing the stones and giving it a realistic appearance. At the top is a single faceted stone that appears to be a citrine but could also be a foil backed rock crystal. On the back of the pin is its original c-catch pin clasp and there is a hooked safety chain for added security. There is also a stamped hallmark on the back. A very special piece, this pin would make a wonderful addition to any collection!
Measurement: The pin measures approximately 4.5" long, is 3/4" at the widest point, and has a depth of 3/8".
Condition: The overall condition of this pin is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the agate or to the sterling silver setting and the pin clasp is secure and in good working condition.
