About Bresse Enamel ~ Bresse enamel or emaux enamel has a distinctive beauty ,it used to be done in a district of eastern France called Bourg en Bresses ~ The enameler did not work directly on the finish product ,but created individual plaques in various colors of enamel by building up the surface with separate drop of enamel colors and gold leaf and creating different shapes/patterns ~ they sometime also added tiny stones on the top to create a rich multi textured effect ~this plaques were then placed on top of silver or base metal .

Buckle measures 4 1/2 inches x 2 3/4 inches maximum width

Belt buckle is in pretty good shape for its age ~I can see one small chip to one of the enamel work , light surface wear to the enamel work ~No broken or chipped Vauxhall glass cab ~Heavy age patina to the brass which come with age.
