Antique Victorian buckle with an applied owl and fancy stamping. This charming buckle, constructed in silver metal, features a highly dimensional and wonderfully expressive owl. The owl is gold washed and contrasts nicely with the oxidized, stamped design on the opposite side. There is a patent mark, Pat. May 10.87. I have not polished or cleaned the buckle, but you can bring up the shine if you prefer. The complex clasping mechanism works perfectly. The buckle measures 2-3/4" by 2-1/8" and weighs a sturdy 19.2g.
Note: the buckle is silver colored except for the owl itself and a tinge of gold along the left edge. My camera lighting gives it a gold appearance.
