Brooch, by Roger Millar

This silver brooch inlaid with gold and white polyester resin was made by the Scottish artist Roger Millar in 1980.

The large brooch is made up of a circular tray subdivided into symmetrical cells and a semicircular extension piece on the lower edge. The tray is inlaid with white resin. The central area is inlaid with cast 9ct gold block.

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.
