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.

Just to let you know the two propelling pencils, in the form of pistols, have just arrived in the condition you sent them. Thank you very much indeed for your excellent and prompt service, and I will keep a look out on your site for any other pencils you may have for sale in the future.
