Vintage Witches Heart Brooch
A traditional Scottish Luckenbooth or witches' heart pin made of pewter.
- The pin is a regular "C" safety clasp
- 2" or 5cm wide and tall
- 90s vintage
- Condition is good, with some minor discolouration to the metal on the back only, and the pin is slightly bent and shows some wear, but is still fully functional
The Luckenbooth design is a traditional design of a crowned heart. A luckenbooth is a Scots word for a silver workshop where these designs were originally made in Edinburgh. It is sometimes also called a Witches Heart, as it was used as a protective talisman.
All my vintage jewellery is sourced by my partner Mike and myself in a converted 18th century naval school on the wild North coast of Scotland. All pieces come gift wrapped.
