This pin is a combination of the Luckenbooth and Scotlands traditional thistle. The Luckenbooth features a heart, crown, and hands. Symbolizing love, loyalty, and friendship respectfully, the Luckenbooth dates back to the 17th century. Since their rise in popularity, brooches and necklaces have been given as tokens of betrothal, affection and friendship. Each brooch is made from polished pewter and measures approximately 1.5" wide at the largest point.
