Scottish Skara Brae Sterling Silver Brooch

 Here we have a  dramatic Sterling silver brooch.  This classic Celtic brooch was influenced by stonework at Skara Brae. It has striking similarities to the work of the famous Orkney Silversmith Ola Gorie but does not appear to have her makers mark on it.  Skara Brae is a stunningly preserved stone age village on Orkney's west coast. Preserved for millennia under shifting sand dunes, details including enigmatic rock symbols are as crisp as they were carved. Apparently it is one of the most visited ancient sites in Europe and also reported as one of the most remarkable.
This interesting vintage sterling silver pin has been finished with a dark acid etching which gives the dramatic black background in this design.  The Skara Brae brooch is in Excellent condition. This Silver Brooch measures approximately 4 cms by 3 cms and has a good solid chunky feel to it. It is good quality  and  has a design that is ancient yet has appeal in modern times. These is a smooth surface to the reverse of this silver brooch where the item has many hallmarks upon it:  but these strikes are worn and  I simply cannot decipher them. I am fully confident that this is a Sterling Silver piece of very high quality. This silver  Brooch fastens with a secure 'roll over' type clasp.
