A good example of a Scottish silver brooch that was made circa 1860-1880. It is set with various shaped agates in a leaf design. This type of jewellery was made from 1860 onwards after Queen Victoria purchased Balmoral Castle. A tourist trade sprang up and pebbles were gathered from the mouths of Scottish rivers and fashioned in to the wonderful pieces of jewellery in either gold or silver that we see today.
