I was at a NZ market recently and a 'plaque' ( for want of a better word
) caught my eye .
I bought it because it had a sticker on the back :
5 ALBERT PLACE
MORAY , SCOTLAND
TEL 0340 20451
This circular 'wall plaque ' is about 8 inches in diameter and about 1
It is covered in a tartan cloth and has a gold-coloured metal thistle
in the centre
The border is studded with gold-coloured studs , probably drawing pins
( thumb tacks in North America ? )
My Stewart Grandmither was born in Dufftown
I wonder if this business , 'HIGHLAND TARGUES' , still exists ?
