Art Nouveau siver-plate belt buckle featuring Sir Joshua Reynolds ‘Angels’ Heads’. In the late 18th century, Sir Joshua Reynolds painted a portrait of a young girl named Frances Gordon showing her as an angel. The subject died before her mother and the painting ended up in the National Gallery, London, in 1841. It was much beloved by the public and the image was copied onto many antique items in the Victorian and Edwardian eras.

This highly detailed and ornate belt buckle features the image of the Angel’s heads three times. In the central part of the buckle the angels are encircled in a wreath and the central buckle panel is curved one of the Central buckle is attached to one piece by rings and the other by a clasp. The end pieces have metal loops for attachment to the fabric belt. The belt buckle is heavy silver plate and finely made. I did not polish the piece.
