Pair of Paste Shoe Buckles

$40.00

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 strap 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 1774 a theft trial a man "was indicted for stealing one pair of silver shoe buckles set with paste, value 40 s."
