celtic plaid brooches

Plaid Brooches are the traditional method of fastening the plaid, cloak or shawl at the shoulder. The Penannular(185) is the most ancient style and at one time they became so exaggerated in size and design that a law was passed in Scotland forbidding the pin to protrude beyond the shoulder!  The Hunterston Brooch (107) is a reproduction of what is arguably the finest remaining example in Scotland of the tenth century Celt.  The other designs all incorporate eternal interlacings from such sources as Lindisfarne and the Book of Kells.
