Shoe Buckle ID…

Shoe Buckle Frame 1700 – 1750…

Rectangular, Cast Copper Alloy, Convex Shoe Buckle with a drilled frame to accept the iron or steel chape, with symmetrical moulded rosettes decorating the centres of each bar at the ends and sides,  small damage to one side, yet the frame is in good condition, with the centre moulded rosettes on the sides, covering the spindle holes… Moulding marks flow around the frame creating an upper and lower section to the frame… This style seems to fit into the 1730’s when the shoe buckles started to increase in size, and yet were still moulded, whilst getting quite decorative…
