Default Scottish targe shield ...

Good Day dear members,

I have this shield for comment :
It was sold as an ''oriental iron shield''
but it looks more like a scottish targe with his celtics patterns...

Old ??
I Don't t know but it seems well made.

Do Scottish or Celtics shield be made of iron ?
Most of them were made of wood and leather covered but I haven't found many posts about this theme,
Targe, scottish targets....

Maybe it's made of brass like highlands targe do more than made of iron ?..
+ it seems to be another under layer, maybe made of wood but it is difficult to say just with the picture...

Any comment is welcomed .

Kind regards
