2 – Luckenbooth Brooch

Luckenbooth Brooch

One of our favourite items in our store, the Luckenbooth Brooch, so called because of its sale from ‘locked booths’ on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile. These brooches were traditionally gifted by a young man to his betrothed and subsequently pinned to the shawl of the first baby to protect from evil spirits. Made in pewter to a traditional design, this brooch is approx. 41mm high.
