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.

testimonials

Having received the beautiful medal that has been the subject of many recent phone calls, I am absolutely delighted with it. More importantly, the research you provided into the military backgrounds of all those involved made it all the more poignant. Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.
