This belt buckle features the face of a young girl with flowing hair. She is framed with an art nouveau floral motif and below her it reads; Lillie Langtry. In the top right corner it reads 1901 and in the lower right corner it reads; The Jersey Lily. This is not from 1901 and doesn’t much resemble the beautiful actress of the late 1880’s that it is suppose to be portraying. It is however a fine looking, cast brass buckle from the late 1960 or early 1970’s. The back has loop on either end. It is stamped on the back as follows; House of Worth - Paris - New York - London - Exclusive Model Copyright 1901 - Copyright Quezel Tiffany Studios, New York. Buckles like this were originally made to deceive but now can be enjoyed for what it is, a nice, decorative piece of artful jewelry.
It measures about 2 ¼” by 3 ¼” and is in very good condition with minimal wear. It has not been highly polished and retains its natural patina.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
