Brooch, by Jack Cunningham

This white metal, copper, brass, mother of pearl and agate brooch was made by the Scottish artist Jack Cunningham in 1986.

The brooch consists of an oval-shaped pocket of reticulated and patinated metal with a brass rim at the top. Flat shapes of copper, mother of pearl and agate emerge from this top rim.

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.
