Vintage Sterling Silver Enamel Heraldic Crown Sword Lion Rampant Brooch
This vintage sterling silver heraldic brooch is crafted in sterling silver. The blue enamel shield features the royal lion of Scotland, the lion rampant. The shield is topped with an ornate crown, which is flanked with a scepter with orb on one side and a sword on the other. The shield is wrapped in laurel leaves, and there is a small silver bell which drops from the brooch. The brooch is artfully crafted from multiple pieces, the blue enamel is in excellent condition. I am not sure the bell is original, I feel is was added at some point, and it can be easily removed if you choose. The brooch weighs an impressive 23.29 grams of sterling silver. It measures 2 1/2 by 2" and is signed sterling. The brooch was also acid tested as sterling.
