Letter C Brooch
This is a fantastic example of zoomorphic designs from the Book of Kells, with a cat and a bird in a gripping struggle. This capital letter C is found in folio 91r, Matthew XXI, The Entry into Jerusalem. Desmond had to rework the claws because the page had been damaged in that part. Using the enamel colours makes it more like the pages of the Book of Kells.
The brooch is 5.5cm x 3cm. This piece is available in a few colours, have green, blue, yellow, white, red, dark oranges, and black, but not all of them work well together. If you would like a different combination, you can contact us to discuss.
