Vintage Celtic Penannular brooch with faux gemstone

 Celtic penannular brooch with faux gemstone decoration.

Another vintage brooch find, but at a festival from a charity stall this time. Yes I do shop at other places not just at car boot sales. I do like this Celtic style brooch because it is sold and well made. Definitely vintage and unfortunately it is not signed.

It is in a pewter jewellery coloured metal with small faux glass gemstones in green, blue and purple. The fake gemstones would have represented malachite, amethyst and possibly blue lace agate. Not a true penannular brooch as it has the pin in the centre fixed with a roll over clasp fastening at the back. 
It is a very nice piece of costume jewellery and one hat will be added to my own collection. I do not sell jewellery anymore and just showcase the pieces I collect. 

Have a look at the many other pieces that I find.
