Large Celtic penannular brooch – a pewter pennanular brooch/fastener with Celtic knot detail and carbon steel pin.
The pin is pushed through a loose weave garment and secured by rotating the circular section over it, just as it would have been used 1000 years ago. Suitable for use with loose weave fabrics only.
The Celts used knotwork to decorate many of their artifacts. To them, the intricate patterns woven into spirals and knots symbolise the continuity of life.
Supplied in a satin and velvet-lined gift box.
