Description
 
The Scottish Thistle is the emblem of Scotland, adopted during the reign of Alexander the Third (1249-1286). Legend tells that an army of Norsemen landed on the coast of Largs late at night to surprise and conquer the Scots. To move more quietly, the Norsemen removed their footwear...but one hapless soldier stepped on a thistle, and cried out in pain, thus alerting the Scots who rose up and were victorious. Our Scottish Thistle Bookmark pays homage to the delightful flower, so steeped in that country's history. Of highly polished silver over pewter, this bookmark from our exclusive line measures 2 5/8" in total length, with the finely detailed thistle being 1" x 1". What a great gift for anyone of Scottish ancestry, or who just loves the look of this beautiful little plant!
