Scottish Thistle Kilt Pin - Polished Pewter
Pewter is an alloy of tin with copper & antimony. It has been used since the Middle Ages to produce drinking vessels, tableware, quaichs, flasks and decorative mounts of knives.
Legend has it that a sleeping party of Scots warriors were saved from ambush by an invading Norse army when one of the attackers trod on a thistle with his bare feet. His cries raised the alarm, the roused Scots duly defeated the invaders, and the thistle was adopted as the symbol of Scotland.
