A desire for a more "modern" look that nevertheless incorporated "traditional" motifs was a hallmark of the Arts and Crafts movement in Scotland. Suddenly, the Thistle in the machine age could be a modern symbol of a modern Scotland. Not merely a symbol of a Scotland that had become an aging Queen's escape.

Modern Thistle Posy


Lead Free Pewter with Detachable Nickel Pin.

Made in U.S.A.

The pin is approximately 74 mm across.

Product Description

A modern, post-Victorian version of a traditional style. The master was -as always- hand-made and hand-finished in the most traditional of ways, but the deeply carved thistle ring and highly polished surface gives a distinctly modern look to an old style. A respectful nod to tradition from a new world and a new century.

An attractively heavy piece that will settle on your shoulder comfortably and hold the whole nine yards. And yes, the detachable handmade nickel pin can be removed so that the thistles can be worn as a very imposing necklace.

As always, this Plaid Brooch is covered by the Nagle Forge & Foundry guarantee: If it is broken or damaged in any way, we will fix it or replace it. We designed it, we made it, we guarantee it.
