    This is a lovely victorian silver brooch. It is in the shape of a buckle and has nice engravings and banded agate details. The size is 4 x 5 cm.

    The age, design, engraving and the banded agate tells me this piece is most likely scottish, so it will be a nice addition to my very small scottish collection. I should post a group photo of those another day.

    I like the mix of romantic details against the more elegant and almost masculine look of the buckle. What do you think?

      This is a very unusual design. I love the counter compliments of the oval base and curved agate detail. Really lovely example. Kudos.

      Thank you racer4you and Valentino! I am glad you also like the balance of that. Makes me feel I was right to buy it. It was a little bit more expensive than I usualy let it ve since I always try to find auctions with less competition so the price will be modest. But this I really wanted and it was still a good price for a victorian scottish buckle brooch.

      Thank you Ms.ChrystalShip! I also love the engravings and they were popular at the time. The brooch has a tube hinge and a catch as simple at a c-catch but broader and I think they are called tube-catch not to be mistaken for trombone-catch that came later. And yes the long needle tells you it has age. Plenty of room for lots of fabric. I will be using it today when I go into town to do some shopping.

      Plein-air-painter thank you very much! I am glad you say it is an unusual design because I think so too. I haven't been able to find a similar one yet. There are buckle brooches around but I haven't seen this design. It has some nice details that blend well together.
