Antique Art Nouveau Abalone Belt Buckle Unmarked Probably Mexican Vintage Jewelry
This belt buckle is quite old, and has inlaid abalone in an etched sterling frame. The etched design includes flowers and geometric squares, quite Art Nouveau. The patterns do have age-related wear, and one part of the abalone has a "valley" in it (though the top is still completely smooth, so nothing to "catch.") The buckle measures 1-3/4" x 1-1/2", and though not marked, is was probably done by a Mexican artist.
It will be shipped in a gift box.
