This decorative two-piece belt buckle dates from the Arts & Crafts period and is ready to add an elegant touch to your leather, velvet ribbon, or textile of choice. The Arts & Crafts movement was all about stepping away from the trend of mass production and focusing back in on the value of the homemade and handmade. The benefit of this shift are easily seen in this piece- the love and attention that went into it are apparent in every detail- and there are a lot of details! On close inspection the design is incredibly fine and you can see charm and dimension on every petal, leaf, and swirl.
Very Good vintage condition.
Stamped "46" on each panel of buckle.
Each panel of the buckle measures 2 1/4” in length for a combined length of 4 1/2" and 2 7/8" across at widest point.
