This little buckle is truly a work of art (well, two works of art). Each side has a reverse painted black silhouette of a child blowing bubbles. The glass is slightly convex, and beneath there is a lovely piece of mother of pearl shell. My camera could not really pick it up, but there is a stunning play of color in the shell (closest I could get is seen in last photo). The pieces are bezel set into brass colored metal with little zig-zagging around the edges.
Marked "Made in Czechoslov." on back. Each piece measures a touch over 1.25" across, linked together they are a little over 2.5" across. Some minor flea bites out of the very edge of the glass.
