Iona Luckenbooth Brooch

Gorgeous and rare mid-century sterling Luckenbooth brooch made on the Scottish Isle of Iona by Hamish Dawson-Bowman and marked C.A.I. for Celtic Arts Industry...2" x 1.75"

Iona was an important apostolic center of the Celtic Church and is the setting of Robert Heidler's science fiction/spiritual fact Iona Portal trilogy...Iona was also home to a flourishing Celtic arts and crafts movement in the early to mid-20th century.

Luckenbooth brooches were an old Scottish tradition, a token of covenant given to a girl when she was betrothed and worn on her shawl as a sign of that covenant.
