Condition Report:

Very Good - Some loss to the coating on the surface of the faux pearl. This is consistent with age, but does not detract from the appeal of this piece.

A Short History...

Glass has been a prevelant feature of costume pieces since the invention of jewellery. An easily accessible material that can be formed into any shape and dyed any colour. Glass was heavily used in 1920s and 1930s pieces, such as this set, because it could be dyed in a vast array of colours to meet the need for affordable jewellery after the Great War and the Depression. This buckle features highly sought after satin glass, which was commonly produced in Czechoslovakia during the Art Deco era and molded into different shapes.  

Wear it With...

This buckle is perfect for evening wear -  it would look beautiful with a little black dress. It could be threaded onto black velvet ribbon and worn as a choker.
