A truly beautiful kilt pin with the rampant lion of Scotland crowned with the royal crown of Scotland on a shield. This sword features an elaborate lion within a shield upon the hilt of the sword, all in polished pewter.
4" x 1 1/4" in size.
The majestic lion of Scotland in solid pewter. Bold, powerful and full of pride. The rampant lion we all know and love is a symbol on the Royal Banner of Scotland.
The earliest recorded use of the Lion Rampant was by King William I who became known as “William the Lion”. His successor, Alexander II adopted it around 1222. Since 1603, when James VI acceded to the thrones of England and Ireland, the Lion Rampant has represented Scotland in the royal arms and banners of successive British monarchs.
One of the most recognizable symbols of Scotland, this elegant kilt pin in solid pewter will be the perfect expression of your love for the Scottish nation and culture.
Kilt pins are NOT just for kilts! This pin is made with an extra strong pin to handle thicker fabrics - making it the perfect pin for coats, jackets, skirts, hats or anywhere else a pin would look beautiful. It is a great pin for a ladies cape or ruana wrap!
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.
