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.

    The Details...

    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.

    The jewellery within the Gemma Redmond Vintage collection has survived to this day because it has been well cared for throughout its lifetime. It is important to continue to care for the jewellery that you buy from us to ensure its continued preservation. Here are some suggestions:

    - Be sure to store your jewellery within the boxes that we provide to ensure that it is protected. This is especially important when travelling with your pieces.

    - Try not to get perfume or hairspray on your items. These liquids can damage the materials that our jewellery is made from.

    - Try not to drop your jewellery or catch your jewellery against hard surfaces. If this happens over time, the findings and fixings can loosen and wear.

    - Try not to get your jewellery wet. Some costume jewellery manufacturers utilised water soluble glue in the making of their pieces. Getting your jewellery wet could cause rhinestones and other details to fall away over time.

    - If you wish to clean your jewellery, use a soft polishing cloth or a soft brush.
