A very interesting early 1950s vintage brooch by the important Scottish Iona silversmith Robert Allison.
The form of this brooch is particularly significant.  It features the rampant lion, honoring the Royal Standard of Scotland, surrounded by the thistle, which is the national emblem and ancient Celtic symbol of nobility representing Scotland for more than 500 years.
The brooch is in exceptionally nice vintage estate condition, with no noted problems, breaks, repairs, damage, etc.  The pin and roll over locking clasp on reverse appear to be original and both are in good working order.
Nice clear hallmarks, with makers mark double struck.  Weight apx. 10.5 grams.

Robert Allison was noted for maintaining the Celtic Revivalist traditions of Iona silversmiths Alexander and Euphemia Ritchie.
