Vintage Signed Robert Allison Sterling Scottish Celtic Cloak Brooch: Huge vintage sterling ( fully hallmarked with the Glasgow Scottish hallmarks) signed RA ( Robert Allison) Celtic cloak brooch with figural birds and ornate Celtic designs. Heavy sterling, it weighs 45.93 grams. Although the date mark is blurred, based on my research I am confident this piece is circa 1950's. The brooch measures 2 1/4" across. The deep golden center stone ( a huge 20mm) has a star design faceted in the center. Although Robert Allison used both genuine stones and glass, I am fairly certain this is glass as the tiny chips ( visible only through a loop) on a facet edge have a conchoidal pattern and I don't see any of the natural zoning a citrine would exhibit, but it has not been tested. The brooch is in excellent condition, has a full set of hallmarks, and the makers initials RA.
