Large vintage pierced metal Celtic design shield shaped shawl ornament (without pin) with simulated semi precious insets.
We would have thought that a piece as large and decorative as this would bear a makers mark, but we have been unable to find one.
We are not sure what the main composition is, so we are assuming base metal, but it is certainly not silver.
As stated above, the ornament has lost its pin. It maybe that a replacement could be found but the weight of this ornament (almost 86g) would have to be taken into account. The ornament would also make a striking pendant if findings were added.
There is slight wear to the silvered backing to the central stone, but otherwise (apart from the obvious lack of a pin) the ornament is structurally sound.
The ornament measures approximately 3.25in in diameter and is just under 0.75in in depth. Exact age unknown but probably dates from the first part, or middle, of last century.
