Title Silver and agate miniature broadsword tie pin or brooch
Nationality Scottish
Period c 1860/70
Price £100.00

This is just over 2.25 inches long. The hilt is representative of a 17th-century ribbon hilt, beak-nosed broadsword. There was a great fashion for agate and silver-mounted jewellery in the 1860s and 70s - plaid brooches and miniature dirks were manufactured in the same way.

These are normally some three inches long, this being the smallest I have seen.

There is a small break at the bottom of one of the bars of the guard. Otherwise, it is in good shape.

Having received the beautiful medal that has been the subject of many recent phone calls, I am absolutely delighted with it. More importantly, the research you provided into the military backgrounds of all those involved made it all the more poignant. Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.
