Cut Steel Buckles

Tiny Cut Steel Buckles / Slides

These two riveted cut steel buckles are unusual smaller than one usually finds; they may once have adorned shoes or hats. They likely date from the late 19th Century to the early 20th Century.

Each measures approximately 7/16" wide by 13/16" in height. The opening - is about 7/16 at its widest point, and 1/4" inch at its narrowest, so will accomodate a ribbon in that measurement range.

In very good condition, with some patina and slight wear. They are very usable.

The pair is yours for $21.
