Edwardian Silver Brooch with 9ct Rose Gold Detail Ref: CAT360
An Edwardian silver brooch with rose gold detail. The central design features what looks like the Isle of Man symbol. However the legs are in the wrong orientation as they are a mirror image when compared to the IoM flag and crest.

The design of three linked legs is known as a Triscele or Triskele and was an Egyptian symbol of revival. It is also thought to be a solar symbol; an expression of the suns movement in relation to the earth. This association with the sun makes this a portent fro good and a symbol of prosperity and good fortune.
