Wonderful nineteenth-century super large antique Victorian Scottish dirk kilt pin brooch with rich Cairngorm foil backed quartz gemstones. Rendered in engraved sterling silver, the brooch contains Aberdeen granite sections in gray and brick red, each with a round Cairngorm popping out from the center. Closed in the back with a c-clasp, tubular hinge and elongated pin stem, the brooch would make a wonderful gift and is good for either the gentlemen or the ladies. A very fine Dirk brooch for the collector!

Our collection consists of pieces that are of antique and vintage condition, which means that all our items are second-hand and used. Customers are not purchasing 'new', 'perfect’, and 'unworn items', and as such, should expect wear and imperfection. It should be expected that these pieces will have normal wear and tear according to their age. Wear could include patina, scuffs on the gold, slightly loose but secure stones, and light scratches on the stones. We try our best to photograph everything accurately with detailed pictures that can be enlarged and will point out any flaws we feel are noteworthy. Please review the photos carefully before purchasing and reach out to us with any questions.
