A splendid Silver Buckle.. It is probably Sterling.
One half of it.
Where its other half is- we do not know.
But- the possibilities are still endless!
Perfectly adaptable as a pendant.. or as a focal piece used in some other way..
Measures: 2 1/4" tall x 2 " wide.
A tubular piece is soldered onto the top- or the flat side..
and would work as a means to mount or string.
Lots of little holes throughout and around the edges make for spaces to string or hang beads and etc.
Marked: Scratched into the metal L shaped piece at the top: "VIII"
No other marks are found.
Let this piece spark you !
