This Celtic sixpence Earring set has an Irish Wolfhound dog on one side and the Irish harp on the other.  The Wolfhound was first named for its ability to rid an area of wolf intrusions. It is generally the largest dog breed on earth, surpassing the Great Danes. Ownership of these were once reserved for the high born and were used in Celtic wars dragging targeted soldiers from their horses or chariots.  Today, the breed is quite more docile.  

 

The domed coins are made of nickel, or copper and nickel, and is attached to  silver ear wires via  Green Irish Connemara Marble.  Connemara is found within a single mountain range off the western coast of Ireland in Connaught Province. The polished Connemara stones are found within a single mountain range in the Connacht Province near the western coast of Ireland.

 

Coin dates range from 1928 to 1969.

 

Coins may not have matching dates, unless requested.
