Title Woman's hat (or belt) buckle, cut steel
Nationality British
Period c 1790
Sold

Nice example, almost certainly by Matthew Boulton of Soho Works, Birmingham, with the bulk of its lead polish finish intact. The steel balls rotate on wires within the frame. This is obviously too big for a stock buckle, but a possible alternative would be a woman's waist belt buckle.

The condition is superb for its age, with 95%+ original lead polish finish.

I received the silver Verdienstkreuz this morning. Your swiftness and dedication was very much appreciated and, though the envelope arrived with a Post Office sticker saying it had been found open or damaged, the cross was unharmed and looks beautiful. Thanks for your time.
