This piece uses Celtic interlacing to form a circular brooch.
Within the weaving there appear to be four small hearts which are knotted together to create a unique Celtic knot called the "Four Marys" love knot in Scotland.
The design was made for Mary, Queen of Scots and her three ladies in waiting - all named Mary and lifelong friends.
This brooch incorporates Celtic Interlacing, with its "overs and unders" representing the "ups and downs" of life; and the unbroken continuity of the endless ribbon symbolizes the hope of eternal life. As such, they are considered by many as a talisman of long life.
1 3/4" x 1 1/2" in pewter.

Pewter was used for decorative metal items in the Ancient World by the Egyptians and later the Romans, and came into extensive use in Europe during the Middle Ages - it was once considered the metal of kings because of its beauty and expense!
That is precisely what I was looking for!
Such a beautiful brooch!
