    Buckle help # 1

    Hi all,

    I would like to thank everyone for looking at my finds and for all your help in identifying them. I am posting buckles now. These look similar to some of the shoe buckles out there but these are of stamped brass ( I think, very thin) I'm guessing maybe worn somewhere on clothing based on the little grommets still attached to one of them I finished making this display case and now it's time to identify it's contents


    PS.... Here is a cool site for buckles http://www.netmarshall.co.uk/buckletitlepage.htm

    Re: Buckle help # 1

    Thanks guys, it's fun to make a display case for relics. Any ideas on what these two buckles may have been used for? I have an idea that they are mid 1800's based on similar pictures I have seen. I am very interested in finding out exactly what each of my buckles were used for. Thanks for looking.

    The closest match would be the knee buckles we previously identified.

    However they went out of fashion just before 1800. I can't help but think that because of the construction & gromits left on that they were a modern fashion item on clothes or even some kind of accessories.

    Great site Gypsyheart, I'll keep on looking. I am leaning towards most of the buckles in this case being something that was on clothing only because they are thin. They are not thick like the breeches knee buckles nor the shoe buckles of the mid 1700's. I think we solved 1/2 the mystery. I need to figure out where on the clothing they were used. Thanks to all for your help. It really completes a nice display when you know what the relics were used for.
