Culloden Sword Kiltpin
Designed and handcrafted in Scotland by Art Pewter, one of the largest producers of quality pewter kilt pins in the world. Exceeds the high standards set by BSEN611-1 and British Standard 5140. These standards are strictly enforced by the Association of British Pewter Craftsmen.
This very collectible kilt pin is a carefully designed replica of a sword excavated from the Battlefield of Culloden near Inverness. This is the same as 065A, but in a highly polished rather than antiqued finish.
This Culloden Kilt Pin is a faithful reproduction of a “basket sword” discarded on the battlefield during the Battle of Culloden in 1746. Art Pewter designers were given permission to reproduce this highly attractive sword as a kilt pin in Fine English Pewter. It is made with a mix consisting of 94% tin 6% copper and antimony, and a trace of Palladium to enhance the natural beauty of fine pewter. This was the last battle for independence from English rule fought on Scottish soil.
