Napier Clan 1950’s Scottish Glengarry Badge. With motto Sans tache ( Without stain )
Approx 42 mm x 48 mm
Traditionally the Napiers are descended from the ancient Earls of Lennox who were one of the Celtic royal families of Scotland and Ireland. One theory holds that a “naperer” is “a person in charge of table linen in a royal or manor house” and that the original Napier’s must have been “naperers” as an office for the royal household. However, there is not much evidence for this title being used in Scotland.

The stock range is ever changing with fine vintage sporrans, plaid brooches, and kilt pins to brooches and clan crest badges from the 17th – 20th centuries. Over the years Scottish provincial silver has become very collectable and highly sought after. Scottish town silversmiths seldom sent their plate to Edinburgh or Glasgow to be assayed and then hallmarked. Instead, they marked the silver with a makers mark or town mark or many combinations of these and other marks. This is what makes Scottish provincial silver so collectable. We pride ourselves in bringing you some of the best of Scotland’s craftsmanship from the past.
