A fabulous and rare pair of all original large size 18th century Georgian cut steel shoe buckles. A sign of wealth and status cut steel shoe buckles were one of the most important parts of the well dressed wardrobe during the Georgian era!

Solidly constructed the buckles are heavy duty and equipped with push button spring mechanisms on the back to open the fasteners. The mechanisms are stamped 'L' & 'R' for the left and right shoe.

The front of the buckles are particularly attractive decorated with faceted steel "mushrooms" that still glisten and sparkle. Black leather covered steel panels contrast beautifully against the ornate frame.

This pair of antique shoe buckles is an absolute delight, a rare treat for costumiers, fashion historians and keen collectors alike. Astounding to think that they have remained together for over 200 years!

MATERIALS: Cut steel, iron, leather.

MEASUREMENTS: 2-1/2" across, 2" high (50x32mm)

WEIGHT: 97 grams

DATE: 1790-1810, Georgian

CONDITION: Very very good antique condition with expected signs of great age but no real flaws. The steel mushrooms on the front are damage and rust free with the leather unfaded and still shiny. The back show more rust and the hinges are solid with no signs of damage or weakness with the buckles snapping tightly shut and firmly locking. The fasteners are opened by depressing the push button which releases the spring lever and flips the fastener open. As can be seen on the photo, and a common occurrence with these Georgian buckles, the tip of the spring plate on one of them has broken off. It doesn't affect the functionality or integrity in any way, it simply means the back needs to be flipped up manually with the tip of a finger nail as opposed to automatically springing up.
