This is a likeness to the Hunterston Brooch! The original has been called is a highly important Celtic brooch. The story is told that it was found near Hunterston, in 1826 by two men from West Kilbride, who were digging drains at the foot of Goldenberry Hill. It is now in the National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh. It has been calculated that it was probably made for ROYALTY around 700 AD, made in the west of Scotland or Ireland.
