Brooch, by Karen A.D. McGlashan

This silver and gold brooch was made by the Scottish artist Karen A.D. McGlashan in 1986. It was purchased for the Scottish Crafts Collection in 1988.

The brooch with a pull-out pin is in the shape of a Roman shield with slots. The metal has been coloured by the action of heated borax and sulphur.

During the 1980s the Scottish Development Agency purchased a number of hand-crafted items for its Scottish Crafts Collection. The aim of the collection was to inform the public of craft production in Scotland through touring exhibitions and education programmes. When the Scottish Craft Council was wound up, the collection was transferred to the National Museums of Scotland.
