Description

The Art Nouveau style of the calla lily buckle contrasts beautifully with the crisp brilliance of the cut steel shoe buckle! The fashion of wearing buckles on shoes flourished in the 17th century, and came in and out of fashion into the early 20th century. Brilliant cut steel buckles such as these were made in Paris circa 1890-1900. As with buttons, men wore the fancy shoe buckles in the early centuries, but by the mid-1900s, shoe buckles had passed into the realm of women’s wear.

  • Brilliant cut steel shoe buckle, made in France circa 1890-1900, 1¾ inches by 2¼ inches.
  • Gilded brass floral button set with cut steel, circa 1880-90.
  • Art Nouveau gilded brass buckle half of calla lily, 1 1/8 inches by 2 inches.
  • Silver plated and brass chains, 30 inches long.
