Annular Brooch


Annular brooches, like all other types were used fasten clothing. Belonging to the 13th century this brooch features the inscription “‘Ave Maria Gracia Plena Invan (Hail Mary full of grace)” whilst some have more mundane messages like ” am a brooch to guard the breast / that no rascal may put his hand thereon”  giving credence to the theory that many of these brooches were in addition to their intended effect also worn as talismans!
