Vintage 1910 Art Nouveau Blakelite Buckle
1910 Art Nouveau black buckle with a beautiful bronze Art Nouveau/Egyptian Revival style loop and hook closure. At times it can be difficult to match chains with the patina of vintage jewelry especially as one as old as this buckle but luck was on my side! I found this incredible vintage textured bronze chain and it matches perfectly with the metal on this buckle. This necklace can be worn long or double wrapped. Great versatility!
Blakelite is actually a trade name taken from its inventor, Leo Baekeland, who invented Blakelite in 1907.
