Triscele Nouveau Design
This Celtic Triscele Nouveau Embossed Round Antiqued Brooch is expertly crafted with beautiful Stylish Pewter. This piece features a brooch in pewter with engraved Celtic triscele design. The triscele is commonly found in late Celtic art and is thought to have some Roman influence, although fine examples are 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.
This brooch measures approximately 45.00mm (1.77 inches) in diameter. Secures to garment by way of pin with locking, safety catch. Supplied in a satin and velvet gift box.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE CELTS
For 800 years the Celts were the most powerful people in central and northern Europe. There were many tribes of Celts who spoke related languages,shared similar customs and beliefs, and created works of art in closely connected styles. Invaders, such as the Romans, eventually drove them from their lands, although they never managed to conquer all the Celts, with parts of Scotland, Wales, Cornwall and Ireland continuing under Celtic rule until about AD1100. It is in these lands that Celtic art and designs survived, carved into stone crosses and discovered on jewellery and ornaments. Religious scholars and monks adopted the traditions of Celtic art, creating illuminated texts such as the Book of Kells. The Celtic Cross evolved, with the circle that surrounds the cross symbolising the "great wheel of life" and knotwork denoting the binding of the soul to the world.
