PEACOCK EYE large antique silver metal buckle with an etched design on the front

Price: $298.00
Description PEACOCK EYE large antique silver metal buckle with an etched design on the front.

The eye stands above the mounting and is absolutely lovely with rich colors.  The blue part is glass and the green is enamel.  The buckle is curved and it is 4" by 2" in the main body, not including the tendrils on one side.  The eye is probably from Gablonz, Czechslovakia, and the buckle was made in about 1900-1910.

There is a very interesting book called "Antique Enameled Jewelry" by Dale Reeves Nichols and it shows a similar buckle on page 57, and there the buckle is identified as one made by noted French Art Nouveau  jeweler Piels Freres.  This one is not quite the same though, so I do not make that attribution.    View  View
