Project Description

Balkan Ottoman era belt, probably Bulgaria

Old filigree belt buckle from the Balkans, most probably Bulgaria. This shape of buckle was spread within a wide area under Ottoman influence, with some technical and stylistic variations.

The belt buckle was made with a two-layers of gilded silver filigree (tested), fixed with a pin to a metal base to make it stronger. The band is the original one, made of brocade sewn onto a leather band.

From late 19th or early 20th century.
