Celtic Eagles Penannular Brooch

SKU: 364115376135191
  • Here is large Celtic style brooch that was completely designed and hand crafted by James Edward Boyle. This size is perfect for men but often worn by women as well. It is cast in fine, lead free, jeweler's pewter and antiqued by hand as shown in the picture.  This penannular brooch actually works like the ancient originals found in Ireland, Scotland and Wales.  It is 2 1/4 inches across and finely detailed.   To wear this brooch the fabric is drawn through the center opening and then the pin part is rotated thus trapping the fabric so the pin cannot release while being worn. The Norse and Celts used this type of brooch to fasten their capes and cloaks about their shoulders.   The tongue pin part will slip through coarse or fine weave cloth without leaving a big hole as some brooches of this kind do.  Due to its size and weight this design works best on a medium to heavy fabric.
