Book of Kells
This kilt pin is based on designs found in the famous Book of Kells. The Book of Kells is the finest piece of Insular Art from the Early Middle Ages. Started on the Scottish island of Iona and finished at Kells in Ireland, this magnificent work of beauty was made around the year 800 against the backdrop of Viking raiding.
This unique kilt pin is finished in Antique Silver.
How and why do I wear a kilt pin?
Ever since Queen Victoria reputedly used her hat pin to secure her kilted skirt modestly on a blustery day, a kilt pin has been worn with a traditional kilt. Its style is entirely a matter of your personal choice. It should be on the right hand side of the kilt, pinned through the front apron only (to prevent tearing) about 4 inches from the bottom of the kilt and 2 inches in from the fringe.
These came in less than a week, the week before Christmas.
The quality is outstanding.
It should be noted that the wolf is much thicker, therefore heavier than the knot.
Got this for my husband's birthday. He loved it and is looking forward to wear with his kilt during any of the many festivals and renn faires we attend.
