Pair of Garnet Buckles

$45.00

Garnet The very wealthy showed their wealth in numerous ways. One was in the details of the garments they wore. These are identical reproductions of an extant pair in a private collection but are made of an alloy that wont tarnish and set with paste. These will accommodate a latchet of 1 1/4" with an overall size of 2" by 2 1/4". They are fashionable for 1750s to 1780s wear.

An example from London's Proceedings of the Old Bailey in 1754 a trial for grand larceny includes a man who "was indicted for stealing one pair of stone shoe-buckles set in silver, val. 20 s.".
