Claidhmhor With Thistle Kilt Pin Antique£20.95
Art Pewter Kilt Pin
This kilt pin features the design of a classic Claidhmhor as well as a Scottish thistle near the hilt. It is also available in a silver finish. Claidhmhor, pronounced 'claymore', meaning 'big sword' is the original Highlanders' sword and was often incredibly large - requiring the use of both hands. The traditional design is completed with an antique finish.
The kilt pin became fashionable in the 1800s and has continued to this day, universally worn on all kilts or kilted skirts. Highlanders invariably elaborated the metal parts of their wearing apparel either by the use of precious metals or by introducing Cairngorm stones, polished pebbles or jewels.
