LARGE CELTIC PENANNULAR BROOCH

A pewter penannular brooch/fastener with Celtic knot detail and carbon steel pin.

Penannular means formed as an incomplete ring.

The pin is pushed through a loose weave garment and secured by rotating the circular section over it, just as it would have been used 1000 years ago.

Suitable for use with loose weave fabrics only.

The Celts used knotwork to decorate many of their artifacts. To them, the intricate patterns woven into spirals and knots symbolise the continuity of life.

Brooches had an important function as status symbols that demonstrated the wealth and rank of the wearer and were regarded as highly valued items.

Diameter: 78mm

Supplied in a satin and velvet-lined gift box.
