1930s Green and Yellow Art Deco Czechoslovakian Mirror Glass Vintage Geometric Design Buckle

Very rare, this belt buckle dates from the 1930s and was made in Czechoslovakia. It features collectible mirror glass. 

Condition Report:

Good - Some mottling to the metal reverse of the buckle, a little movement of one glass panel within its setting and a tiny element of speckling to the yellow glass panels. This is consistent with age, but does not detract from the appeal of this piece.

This brass belt buckle features faceted green and yellow mirror glass panels. They are claw set into a geometric design. The buckle measures 5cm x 2.5cm.

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 mirror glass, which was commonly produced in Czechoslovakia during the Art Deco era and molded in different shapes with a silvered backing.  

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.
