Large Antique Irish Connemara Marble Harp Brooch Pin Silver

As we drove the winding roads along the Great Atlantic way the sun turned to clouds and fat flakes of snow began to fall. We wound around and down and up and over, along lochs and through tiny towns with pubs looking cozy as smoke poured from their chimneys. The Connemara mountains loomed in the distance, their tops white with snow. The fields around us were dotted with rocks and sheep grazed and wandered freely, occasionally blocking the road as they went. When we finally came around a bend and saw the majestic lines of Kylemore Abbey my heart leapt. The stunning white castle contrasted against woods tinged with snow, all reflected in the lake it borders. It's quite the drive to get to Kylemore, but it was worth every second, I highly recommend a visit!

This fantastic, large Silver Victorian Irish Connemara Harp Brooch is an unbelievably rare find. It dates to about the same age as the Abbey, the early 1870’s. This substantial Irish harp is set with Connemara ‘Marble’ (green limestone mined in these very same Connemara Mountains) accented by a hand wrought silver frame with finely braided silver wire strings. The brooch measures 61.4 x 36.9 x 6.8 millimeters and is in near perfect condition, it weighs 27.0 grams.

As an exceptional gift for any lover of all things Irish, or if you have been looking for that perfect gem from the Emerald Isle to add to your collection, look no further!
