This is high quality Clan Crest Bonnet Cap Badge made with excellent craftsmanship. Measuring at approximately 1.5 inches this is a must have family heirloom. In ancient times, a chief wore in battle a distinguishing badge on his helmet, a device which his followers could recognise in the turmoil of action. This is known as the Crest of the Chief and appears at the top of his full coat of arms. Anyone bearing the same name as a Scottish Chief is a clansman of the Chief and has the privilege of wearing his crest.
