Here is a pretty sterling buckle with a floral motif highlighted with plique a jour (translucent enamel). These buckles with plique are quite unusual. The plique is red, 2 different blues, and green. It is signed with a “JK” above another “JK” in a box. It has marks for London, 1886, and a duty mark. Measuring 3-1/8” x 2-1/4", it weighs 32.7g or 1.16 oz. It’s in quite good condition. The plique has a few hairlines and some bubbles, which is common. The red and blue plique is dark, so it’s not very visible in the photo. The red plique appears to have some very fine threads caught in it; we can’t tell what they are. Nonetheless, it’s a lovely piece. The photos are part of the description; please examine them carefully. Shipping, handling, and insurance included within the USA.
