This celluloid cape clasp or buckle is made of layered celluloid with a deeply impressed design of leafy branches. The olive drab top color is cut back to reveal a deep brown layer beneath the top. There is a small surface chip on one side of the clasp. The closure for this clasp is a metal hook. There is some rust on the hook side of the closure. There are shanks on each half of the buckle for sewing it to fabric. The buckle measures 4 1/4 inches in length and 1 1/2 inch in maximum height.
This is a great buckle to use as a replacement on a piece of vintage clothing, but could also be a nice focal point for a new garment or for use on textile art. 15
