Description

This is a fine quality and beautifully made sterling silver and enamel buckle from the latter part of the 19th century. The buckle is simply marked 'sterling' and has a silversmith mark of a conjoined 'MG' or 'GM' depending on how you read it.

The style of mark suggests to me that the piece is American in origin as this was a typical format of marks used there - despite some time spent researching the makers mark I've been unable to ascertain who made this item, it's not pictured in any reference source I have nor any online source.

Despite the mystery silversmith mark it's obvious this is a high quality piece. To the front is a lovely mid lilac colour guilloche enamel which has been highlighted with little gold star and flower shaped accents.

The two retaining pins sit upon a central bar and can pivot up and down (see picture 4). As can be seen in picture 3 the buckle has a slightly curved shaped which will would follow the natural curve of the body when worn at the waist. The silver marks are to the reverse on one of the shorter ends.

In light of the fact I don't have any biographical information on the silversmith I can only provided an approximate date of manufacture - judging by the style alone and comparing this example to U.K hallmarked pieces, it will date from the period of around 1900 through to 1910
