A beautiful and unique clasp which could be used as that special "statement" clasp for a necklace or bracelet.

The ornate filigree clasp is highlighted with the relief of a Cavalier (or possibly the King, Monarch) seated on horseback.

The reverse of the clasp has the engraved initials of M.A. – D.R. and year1666. Was it used as the clasp for a necklace presented as a marriage gift? We will never know!

The clasp closes firmly. There are three hallmark which I cannot identify. Possibly French origin, with possible city of Tours mark.

The clasp measures approx.2 ¼” across, by 2” top to bottom.
It does shows wear through the ages, but it is still an amazing piece to repurpose into a necklace, bracelet, belt.

Weight 24.9 grams
