Antique Japanese Satsuma Porcelain Enamel Belt Buckle - image 1 of 5

We have a jewelry collector friend who would look at this antique Satsuma belt buckle and say...'I would make this into a ring'. And she would. And what a ring it would be.

This early 20th Century Japanese buckle is an exquisite example of hand painted enamel and gilded porcelain Satsuma. The oval buckle is from the Meiji period (1868 - 1912), circa 1900.

The art features a floral scene of cascading flowers, maybe wisteria, in blue, green and maroon colors. A bird flies by holding a ribbon in its mouth. The black and blue border is painted with gold fans along the edge. The back is gilded metal stamped FS (maker's mark) in a diamond shape.

The buckle measures 1 1/2 inches across (not including the hook) by 2 1/4 inches high. It weighs 30.2 grams.

The surface of the enameled porcelain shows fine overall crazing as would be expected for its age. The back gilded brass also shows decades of patina...beautiful to an antique lover.

Excellent antique condition. Buckle, ring,...just a beautiful thing.
