Antique brooches showing early Irish harps. I am trying to keep in stock a selection, carefully chosen for being reasonably accurate depictions of extant early Irish harps. At present we can offer two types (click the photo for closeup picture):
Fanciful design, set with Connemara marble. Un-hallmarked silver colour metal, incised designs. Hinged pin with old-fashioned hook clasp on back. I think these date from the late 19th or early 20th century. £50
Enamelled, plated bronze, depicting the Trinity college harp fairly accurately. 2cm long. Hinged pin and old-fashioned hook clasp on back. I think these date from the 1940s or 50s. Some have discreet lettering “Harp Lager”; some have no lettering. £12 lettered / £16 unlettered.
Please enquire for the colours and designs currently available.
Antique Irish silver coins, various dates between 1928 and 1950. 75% pure silver, with the harp design on the front and an animal on the back.
Shilling (1s), bull, £7
Florin (2s), salmon, £14
Halfcrown (2/6), horse, £17.50
