ANTIQUE VICTORIAN SCOTTISH AGATE PENANNULAR CELTIC BROOCH CIRCA 1860 KITE MARK
This fabulous Antique Victorian Scottish Penannular Celtic brooch is Circa 1860.
Scottish jewellery was made popular by Queen Victoria as it became a souvenir of her frequent trips to Scotland and her Scottish Castle Balmoral from the mid 1800s.
