A stunning old piece with very ornate pierced engraving depicting a Roman or Medieval scene with Lady, man, child, and dog. The Hall Marks are for Chester, England, 1895 and the Maker is N.H. for Nathan & Hayes (George Nathan & Ridley Hayes) of Birmingham & Chester. We think this is probably a Nurses Buckle and the scene may portray a Physician and patient. Silver weight is 58 grams and the measurement across the joined parts of the buckle is 5 1/4" with a maximum width of 2 5/8" on each piece. A beautiful and rare piece.
