The Mizpah Citrine Thistle Kilt Pin is a classic mid-20th century-era design by Mizpah featuring a central citrine crowning a stylized thistle. The form is based on the work of the Ward Brothers studio from 30 to 40 years earlier. The hallmark reads “Mizpah” with no other metal or maker’s marks. A higher end costume piece, the pin tests as silver plate. Measures approximately 1.5 inches across. A fantastic starter pin for the new Scottish enthusiast.
During the mid-20th century, costume jewelry exploded in Scotland as customers sought classic designs in more affordable styles. Companies like Miracle, Mizpah and Jacobite produced hefty, colorful pins and pendants in plated base metals with glass and acrylic stones. Today, some of these foundries continue to turn out new designs. Older pieces enjoy a high degree of popularity on the secondary market among collectors looking for shapes, designs and colors not commonly found in traditional Scottish silver work.
