Antique Georgian Shoe buckle French Hallmarked Solid Silver Paste Buckle
A superbly crafted, antique shoe buckle that is estimated to date from the Georgian period. Originally part of a matching pair, this surviving piece originates from France and has been cast from solid, sterling silver (see Marks below). Formed in a classic, oval-shaped design, which features two scalloped borders of sparkling, clear paste stones. Good antique condition; as demonstrated in the pictures, a number of the original pastes have a pink tint which is likely due to age wear / discolouration of the backing foils. That being said, overall, the paste stones are lovely and bright. Note also that there is a small pin missing from one side, that would have helped to brace the separate borders of the frame. The oval of the buckle measures approximately 5.0 cm by 1.7 cm, or 2 inches by 1 ¾ inches. Marks: The reverse of one of the buckle bars is stamped with a set of French Hallmarks / Makers Mark. The buckle frame has also been acid tested and yields a positive result for high purity silver.
