The Cherub Sterling Pin is a one-of-a-kind, hand-cast sterling silver angel brooch by an unknown artist, hallmarked only as “Heatherstone Sterling”
The Cherub Sterling Pin is a one-of-a-kind, hand-cast sterling silver angel brooch. The reverse includes a hand-signed “Heatherstone Sterling” hallmark although not the Heatherstone many Scottish enthusiasts are probably used to. This is single-cast by an artisan silversmith in beautiful, heavy (32+ grams) silver. Measures 1.5 by 1.75 inches.
While cherubs rarely appear in Scottish literature, the city of Glasgow hides one of the best-known cherubs in country. The Medieval-era square known as Trongate (from “trone,” ancient Scottish for the scales used to weigh goods coming off the River Clyde) neighbors the Trongate Theatre,. The Theatre opened in the late 20th century in what was originally a 200 year-old church. The renovation included two pieces of art by Scottish-born Kenny Hunter — “Cherub” and “Skull.” These bronze sculptures not the building new purpose as an arts venue and pay tribute to the building’s past as a house of worship.
