Our gorgeous antique Japanese Satsuma buckle is an estate find that dates to about 1900. It is enameled in a deep cobalt blue and embellished with gold imagery. It is a striking piece with a Heron standing in the center of reeds and flowers.
The buckle is intended to have a belt slip through one side and hook from the center to the other. It measures 2-1/8'' in diameter. I have noticed one nick at the top right side. There is a makers mark pressed into the brass back. Age appropriate wear.
