Antique Cut Steel Fashion Accessories

ANTIQUE CUT STEEL FANCY ORNATE SHOE BUCKLES

Individually set, multifaceted, polished steel studs. Curvilinear design. Gently undulating edges. Originally meant to adorn a lady's evening shoes, these wonderful Victorian Era buckles lend themselves easily to modern re-purposing. Slip a ribbon or leather strap under the back metal bar and voila, you have an amazingly brilliant bracelet or choker necklace!

These buckles are not stamped with a country of origin but most were made in France.

Upon close inspection, I counted two missing studs and only a very few tiny areas of corrosion. Unlike stainless steel, early steel did corrode. Items are considered to be in Very Good condition. Their contact with rain and puddles appears to have been minimal. Measurements: 2 1/2" by 2".

Their large sizes makes for perfect for embellishing accessories such as scarves, hats and purses.
