Steel cut toe buckles with single clip to affix to a pair of women's pumps. Lovely condition The steel sparkles like marcasites.
Steel buckles for shoes and belts, as well as steel cut jewelry, have been around since the 1600s. At one time, it was more valuable than gold or silver. Napoleon gave Josephine a steel cut parue set as a wedding present. I'm not sure if it was because he couldn't afford gold or silver yet--the war and all and he wasn't emperor yet--or if steel cut was really that fashionable.
These are very fashionable. Very usable still and very affordable. Dimensions are 2.5" x 1.3/4" with a black cloth back. Thank you for checking in.
If I love it, I hope you will too.
