This brooch was made circa 1860. It is designed as a thistle and lock. It is set with jasper, bloodstone and other agates with seven cabochon citrines. The stones were sourced in the mouth of Scottish rivers and polished in to shapes and set in to items of jewellery from the 1860s onwards. Queen Victorian purchased Balmoral Castle in the Scottish Highlands in the 1860s and this spawned a thriving tourist trade in this type of jewellery. It is highly collectable today because of the history and quality of the workmanship.
