Cap, by Linda Lewin

This silver, pearl and amethyst cap was made by the Scottish artist Linda Lewin in 1988.

The cap consists of a framework of silver wire tied and soldered together. Silver branches and leaves were made separately and soldered to the frame. A large amethyst in a setting is in front. Clusters of freshwater pearls are placed throughout the framework.

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.
