    More Vintage Scottish Jewelry...can you help to identify?

    Per my first post here are photos of more Scottish Jewelry. Purchased from a close friend, whose Aunt passed, but came from Glasgow, know nothing about the items, hoping somebody could shed some light on the history of the items...

    Kilt pin: Do you know the stone?k. It is silver:"



    Back, do you know the hallmarks:



    Broach pin Silver....very small around 3 inches in circumferences so not a kilt broach.



    Another kilt pin, do you know the hair, the small logo is an Elk or deer head with antlers, silver"



    Any idea of what these are, where they are made, and value, I know they are not worth much, but do know they are vintage from the 50s or early 60's...Thanks

    The last photo is a Bavarian hat pin. The hair is boar and the logo is Elk. I expect the date would be early 1950's. The style has been popular since the 1920's.

    This photo is listing deer hair instead of boar. I expect the real items to fit inside this price range.

    Thank you, very interesting. Elk makes sense, boar hair, this is a very soft hair, but I have not idea, I was think horse hair, but boar makes sense....Thank you.

    I agree about the hat pin. I have an Alpenhut I bought in Switzerland in 1984, and it has one of those pinned to it (along with lots of other pins commemorating places I visited on that trip).

    All of the items you've posted are attractive, but I don't have any info on the other two.
