COMMENTS: This vintage hand hammered Sterling Silver belt buckle is a wonderful piece of our history. William B. Kerr & Co. was based out of Newark, New Jersey from the late 1800's to late 1920's. Well regarded for Art Nouveau jewelry and absorbed by Gorham in 1927. There is a place on the front of the buckle that could be monogrammed and would be great for either a man or a woman. It is in excellent condition and the belt mechanism is in perfect working order. It is stamped on the back with "sterling" 5172-5 H.M.I. Pat APL'D For -KERR . The measurement of the buckle is 1 3/4" inches by 1 3/8 inches and weighs 20.2 grams. I have not cleaned the buckle because some people prefer to have the patina on the piece.
