This beautiful vintage Miracle brooch is a delightful example of Miracle's trademark colourful, Scottish style. Inset with glass "stones" in faux onyx, carnelian and green agate, this has a medieval feeling with tiny calligraphic motifs accenting the frame and buckled.
Pin is 3.5cm or just over 1 1/4" in diameter and closes with a locking C clasp. It makes a lovely accent for a plaid or hand woven scarf as well as a closure for a shawl or hand-knitted cardigan.
In the heraldry of Scottish clans, the belt that surrounds the clan's heraldic badge denotes an allegiance to a clan chief-- often this is the sharing of a surname or common ancestry. In this pin, the elegant belt motif is celebrated on its own.
All our vintage pieces are carefully sourced by my husband Mike and I on the wild northeast coast of Scotland.
