ANTIQUE VICTORIAN SCOTTISH BROOCH SILVER AGATE STAR CIRCA 1860
This beautiful antique Scottish Silver Agate brooch is Victorian 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.
