A pewter brooch with engraved Celtic triscele design. Secures to garment by way of a pin with locking, safety catch.
The triscele is commonly found in late Celtic art and is thought to have some Roman influence, fine examples are also found in the native art of Ireland and Scotland. It is thought to represent the three realms of Celtic lore: the past, the present and the future. One of the most popular of Ancient Celtic designs, it survived well into the Christian period, probably because it could also be considered to represent the Holy Trinity.
