Finest quality traditional jewellery Clutch Pin made in solid 100% lead free Pewter. 

The Book of Deer is a tenth century Scottish manuscript. It is a Gospel Book, with additional historical notes and property deeds from the next couple of centuries inserted in Latin and Gaelic - in fact it has the earliest surviving written Gaelic in existence. It is associated with the old Abbey of Deer in Buchan in the north east. The illuminations within this little pocket book are wonderful pieces of early art from Scotland. 

This pin is taken from the full page depiction of St John. He is holding a reliquary (a box for holding holy relics). 

Hand-cast and finished in our Glasgow workshop, by our highly trained craftsmen.

Size: 33mm x 13mm.
