Here is a sterling silver buckle with a floral motif with plique a jour (translucent) enamel. These buckles with plique are quite unusual. The plique is red, two shades of blue, 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 is in very good condition. The plique has a few hairlines and some bubbles, which is normal for this type of enamel. The red and blue plique is dark, so it’s hard to see in the photos. The red plique appears to have some very fine threads caught in it; we can’t tell what they are, but they’re only visible with magnification. Regardless, it’s a lovely piece. The photos are part of the description; please examine them carefully. Thanks! We do lay-away. Shipping, handling, and insurance included within the USA.
