Title Pair of cut steel shoe buckles
Nationality Russian
Period c 1790
Sold

A superb pair! Four years ago, I had a smallsword with almost identical workmanship. Typical late Tula work with superimposed gold wire decoration and 'sharp' studs, indicating Russian origins. Woodstock and Birmingham work always have rounded studs.

There is the odd piece of studwork missing on at least one of the buckles, but, all in all, in superb condition for their age. They have obviously spent most of their lives in a box, sadly now missing!

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.
