For your consideration is this beautiful circa 1880 belt buckle. Made from gutta percha with a lovely flower design. The shape reminds me of a butterfly. Back metal is painted black. It has two slots to slide the belt through and a hook closure.
It measures 3 inches by 2 inches.
It is in great functioning condition. It does have some paint loss as shown to the back metal. It does not line up perfectly but this is the way that it was made and just a hair off as shown.
