Regardless of what they are I just love seeing these old enamel items, even for something like an old school badge you can see the quality and craftsmanship that can go into them, thanks for shewing them.

One swallow does not a summer make, nor one fine day.
But six might just do it.

Silver buckle by Arthur Johnson Smith Birm 1908.
Engraved plate with applied motif of art nouveau lady in the style of Alphonse Mucha.

This buckle is almost 4 inches high, you would need to be very slim to wear it comfortably!

Very attractive and interesting items- do you have any images to show fittings and how a buckle fits to a belt? Regards, Paul.

Look to fit similar to some military buckles. http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=...le&FORM=HDRSC2
What material were the belts made of? Regards, Paul.

This is the standard fittings straight bars with hook and latch.
But there are half a dozen others, the belts were normally black elasticated.
