This lovely silver buckle is typical of the items that were presented to a nurse on her graduation. It is of pleasing cut-out sterling silver with scrolls and possible fleur de lis. The two halves of the buckle join via a wide hook and loop at the back and there are two silver bars, one on each half, for attachment of fabric or leather. The condition is very good for age and this would make a lovely addition to a collection of silver or nurse’s collectables. Maximum width 4.25 ins (10.8cm) x 2.5 ins (6.3cm). Weight 50 grams.
