This is a pair of buckles that appear to be most likely for use on breeches. This form of apparel died out in the mid-19th century. They were attached to the breeches and small flaps of fabric were passed through them to neatly secure the garment in position. Each has two prongs with a central bar though which the fabric could be threaded and secured. They are decorated with multiple small steel studs. The condition is good for age and these would be an interesting addition to a collection of fashion accessories or to complete an outfit. Each measures 2.5cm x 2cm. Combined weight 12 grams.
