Large Amber Cabochon hairslide with wooden pin – PH48A – pewter knotwork design.
The American black walnut wooden pin on the back holds the hair tightly to prevent the hairslide from slipping out.
Hairslides with a wooden pin require a thicker mass of hair to be effective but once pushed in remain very secure.
The Celts used knotwork to decorate many of their artifacts. To them, the intricate patterns woven into spirals and knots symbolise the continuity of life.
Width: 86mm Height: 17mm Length of pin: 117mm
