Breadalbane Bling

Perth Museum
15 May – 20 August 2015

Recommend this exhibition

The British Museum is lending two of its magnificent medieval brooches: the 16th century Glenlyon brooch and the Pictish Breadalbane brooch to Perth Museum & Art Gallery’s Breadalbane Bling exhibition. Returning back to where they would have adorned medieval nobility, the brooches will form the centrepiece of an exciting new exploration of medieval power dressing in Glenlyon and beyond.

This will be the first time that the brooches have been seen in Perthshire since the late 19th century, when the Glenlyon brooch was bought at auction by the British Museum and the Marquis of Breadalbane donated the Breadalbane brooch to the British Museum.
