Scottish Provincial Silver
Despite laws instructing goldsmiths to send their wares to Edinburgh (and later Glasgow) for hallmarking, many silversmiths from the burghs of Scotland enjoyed sufficient independence from the assay office to use local marks. They did this to avoid the perils of travel and (after 1784) to escape paying duty in a region where a healthy disdain for the Hanoverians persisted well into the 19th century. There were some 30 different centres of silver production recorded, from Arbroath, Perth, Aberdeen, Elgin to Wick. Their legacy is an extraordinary array of silver town and makers’ marks that have intrigued collectors for more than a century.
The best-known Victorian collection of Scottish provincial silver was amassed by nobleman and liberal politician Gavin Campbell, 1st Marquess of Breadalbane (1851-1922), and it was his extensive holdings which formed the main reference for the (often inaccurate) Scottish sections in Sir Charles Jackson’s first edition of English Goldsmiths and Their Marks in 1905.

Kennedy Clan History – The family originated from Ulster and are descended from Duncan of Carrick who lived in the 12th century. The first mention of the name is that of Gilbert Mac Kennedi who witnessed a Charter from the lands of Carric in the reign of William the Lion.

John Kennedy of Dunure was in situ at Cassilis in 1360 and his son, Sir Gilbert, was a hostage for the release of David II from English custody three years earlier. Gilbert’s son James married Princess Mary Stewart, daughter of Robert III, and their son, another Robert, was created Lord Kennedy in 1452. His brother James (1408-65) was Bishop of Dunkeld and Archbishop of St Andrews.

David, 3rd Lord Kennedy, was created Earl of Cassilis in 1502 and died at the Battle of Flodden eleven years later. The 2nd Earl was murdered by Sir Hugh Campbell of Loudon, Sheriff of Ayr, from whom he had unsuccessfully attempted to rescue James V. The 3rd Earl was poisoned in France on his return from the marriage of Mary Queen of Scots to the Dauphin in 1558.

What Size? – Scottish Jacket & Kilt Jacket Sizing Guide

To make sure your items fit perfectly when they arrive, we’ve made some measuring guides with handy tips to help you take accurate measurements first time.

How to Measure for your kilt

  • It’s easiest to have someone measure you
  • Stand straight up and relax
  • Measure at points shown without holding your breath
  • Ensure measurement is not taken over thick clothing
  • Tape measure should be snug but not too tight
  • All measurements should be taken in inches

Waist: A firm measurement taken just below the bottom of the rib cage on the natural waist.

Hips: Seat: Taken at the widest point of the seat.

Length: Measure from the natural waist to the middle of the kneecap. Take this measurement to the nearest 1/4 inch. It is important that this is done standing straight with your feet together. Note: Max kilt length available for hire is 28 inch.

Height – It’s very important that we get your full height (head to toe) so we can judge if the sizes you have provided appear correct, we will confirm this with you when you place an order.

Jacket & Tweed Sizes

Measurements should preferably be taken by another person. Always stand up straight and look straight ahead. BE NATURAL – Relax, and do not inhale and hold your breath or exhale and hold.

CHEST – Measure around the fullest part of the chest (this is generally across the nipple), be sure to keep the tape up under your arms and around shoulder blades.
WAIST – Measure the waist keeping one finger between tape and body (The widest point is usually across the navel).

The Gaelic sgian dubh meaning “black knife”, where “black” may refer to the usual colour of the handle of the knife. It is also suggested that “black” means secret, or hidden, as in the word blackmail. This is based on the stories and theories surrounding the knife’s origin and the meaning of “Dubh” in Gaelic, in particular those associated with the Highland custom of depositing weapons at the entrance to a house prior to entering as a guest. Despite this practice, a small twin edged-dagger, (‘Mattucashlass’), concealed under the armpit, combined with a smaller knife, (‘Sgian dubh’).
