Art Pewter Silver
A realistic antique-finished thistle, the 'Flower of Scotland' as celebrated in the unofficial national anthem.
The legend of the thistle becoming a Scottish symbol relates how a hapless barefoot Viking trod on a thistle while sneaking up on a Scottish camp during a night attack. The resulting yelp alerted the Scots and led to the route of the Viking army. The thistle is often pared with the motto of the House of Stewart, Nemo me impune lacessit, 'no one harms me with impunity'.
Designed as a premium antique-silver plated kilt pin, but also makes an excellent brooch.
Cast and finished in Glasgow, Scotland, by highly trained craftsmen.
Size: 8.3cm long.
