The set is in used condition with a few age marks on the front which can probably be cleaned by someone who knows how to preserve these items. The back has some paint loss as shown in the photos. Altogether a beautiful buckle set. Lovely representation of a great era in clothing, flapper era clothing, over the top decorative style. Lovely for a collection, for reuse, for repurposing. I can easily see these individual floral ovals reused as necklace pendants.
