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.
