Antique Gold Wash over Brass Belt Buckle Two Pieces
This beautiful large Art Nouveau two piece brass belt or sash buckle is just laden with charm. Most is done in repousse with scrolls and shell like designs. The most interesting thing about this buckle is that it was made in two layers- tiered, if you will. The gorgeous flowers and their slender curved stems at the top of the buckle overlap the bottom sections. This gives even more depth and beauty to the piece. Amazingly most of the gold wash remains—back shows only slight wear ono the buckle sections—bars that hold the sash in place are slightly bent, in a gently sloping or curvy manner. It measures 3-1/2” x 2-3/8” when in the closed position. Condition is amazing considering the age of the buckle.
