I was given a Celtic cross pendant, the person who gave it

Customer Question

I was given a Celtic cross pendant, the person who gave it to me is no longer able to give me information regarding it but it's silver, it's substantial in weight, does not tarnish, but has no carat or silver markings but on the one side of it is has a marking of "SCOTLAND" and on the other side it has a marking of what I think is "DB"? I have used a magnet on it and it is not magnetic - any idea what this pendant would be made of or any ways to check, and whether the "DB" and "SCOTLAND" are significant?

Hello and Welcome to Just Answer,
My name is***** am a Personal Property Appraiser and would be happy to assist you with your question.
Based on the marking as well as the design, your Celtic Cross pendant would have been produced by Hamish Dawson Bowman of Celtic art industries.
The pendant would have been produced in the mid 20th century(circa 1960's) out of pewter.
In the current market you would be looking at a resale value of around 35-45USD.
I hope this information was helpful to you today.
Best of luck with your vintage cross pendant.
Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.
Thank You,
