SASH
PINS and BUCKLES
circa 1900







Sash pins were worn most in the
late Victorian and Edwardian time periods, from the 1890’s through the
teens. This photo shows a lady wearing a buckle at her waist in the same
position a sash pin would be worn.

As fashions moved from the
heavier Victorian look, like this lovely lady with her bustle…

… and this lady wearing a
sash pin at her waist…

… to the lighter weight
Edwardian dresses with the "wasp-waist" emphasis like this…

…sash pins worn at the
waist became even more popular.

VICTORIAN
cut steel belt disks and chains, 28-3/4" wearable size and the
widest disk is 1-1/2". It is "as is" with 2 brads missing and a bit of light
rust, but still easily wearable and lovely as well. Each stud has from 10-12
facets. Cut steel is polished steel hand faceted studs riveted to a steel
backing to create jewelry and ornaments, buttons and chatelaines. Popular
from the Georgian through the Victorian eras, cut steel jewelry in the warm
glow of candlelight must have been something to behold. Each stud could have
up to 15 facets, and in general the finer and older the piece, the more
facets the studs will have.

GNS George STEERE
Phoenix motif hidden locket brooch with fittings for one
photo. The topaz colored faceted rhinestone showsfrom behind the swirl of the bird’s
wings, circa 1910, 3" by 2-5/8". The locket is under the front motif and opens
on a hinge. Steere made jewelry in Rhode Island from about 1906-1911, and his
pieces have a mythical feel in their motifs. This is the first locket brooch I
have seen from this maker so I assume they are fairly rare.

VICTORIAN
silver tone metal sash brooch or buckle with a green striped

originally meant to be worn pinned at the waist on a fabric sash like a

butterflies on each side.
