    Yes, but that's annular, which is to say a spike on a full circle, not penannular, which would be a spike on an interrupted circle. The two styles happened at very different points in history, and although I have a beautiful copper penannular which was made for me by a dear friend when I'd forgotten my plaid brooch, I have to agree that the penannular style is not appropriate to the Jacobite period except in fantasy.

    Again, I would like to stress the point that the 19th Century's version of Jacobite was VERY fantasying !

    I'm starting to like and enjoy this both na´ve and creative approach as opposed to strict re-enactment. Must be old age creeping on me...

    Like breaking the rules with taste if you know what the rules are and you know what you're doing in choosing a different approach... It's risky though. But exciting and fun if done in full control . and willing to get scratched a bit.


    Best,

    Robert

    A very cool ANNULAR (fully circular) brooch, quite appropriate to the period - and usually described as women's wear in original documents. It's not a PENANNULAR ("almost a circle")....
