It has arrived! Our exclusive silver leek pin is a reproduction of an C19th antique.
Leeks are the original symbol of Wales and, as legend has it, originated from a great battle against the Saxons. St. David (or some sources say The C7th king of Gwynedd, Cadwaladr) advised the Welsh to wear leeks in their hats to show which side they were on. It must have worked well, as the battle was won!

This was created especially for a customer who wanted a silver leek for a christening present. We searched far and wide but found none - so decided to create our own! The Leek was cast from an antique brooch of my mother's.
