Today we are happy to offer for sale a lovely vintage Scottish sterling silver and agate dirk pin. This piece was made by noted Scottish silversmith Robert Allison in the mid 20th century. This handsome dirk kilt pin features finely polished agate cased in a hand-engraved “sheath”; the hilt of the knife features a cabochon agate stone. Fully hallmarked on the back with “RA” for Robert Allison, a Thistle for sterling, a castle for Edinburgh, and a Gothic (possibly?) E for the year. Brooch presents beautifully and is in very good vintage condition, with very minimal wear, tarnishing, and patina commensurate with age and light use. Tube hinge and safety clasp, working properly. Lovely pin made in the Scottish tradition, treasured pieces of history. Fresh to the market from a Rhode Island estate!
