Large Vintage Black Metal Buckle, MT3

Item details

A very large black metal buckle in faceted "faux jet" which I think dates back to the 1910s. Because the metal is lightweight, slightly curved and somewhat malleable, I believe it was intended as decoration along the crown of a hat. There is some wear around the bottom center piece, but other than that, this buckle is in excellent condition. It measures 6" across (with the curve) and 3.25" from top to bottom.

I purchased this buckle when I was a vintage textiles dealer, specializing in antique and vintage hats, and thought it might be useful someday. But it's time to let it go...

This shop was opened for the purpose of selling all of the vintage items that I've accumulated over the past thirty years that I can't use for the doll clothing I make for my other shop -- For All Time Designs. So feel free to ask any questions or ask for a bulk price if you're interested in multiple lots and so I can calculate the shipping costs for you -- frequent postage increases and the need to use different packaging are making it very difficult to use "across the board" shipping rates.

International Customers (including Canada) -- unfortunately, the USPS significantly increased international postal rates, effective January 17, 2016, and with weight classes that make it very difficult for me to include international rates in my listings. I apologize for the inconvenience, but if you are interested in purchasing an item from my shop, please contact me so that I can provide you with the shipping costs to your country.

Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing multiple items so I can calculate the accurate shipping costs for you.

I am sorry to say that the USPS has increased postage rates for packages again, effective January 17, 2016 (domestic and international) -- so I have had to raise my shipping costs for all of my Shipping Profiles. For International Customers, I am particularly sorry to say that the USPS has not only significantly increased international postal rates, but has created two weight categories: 1-8 ounces and 9 ounces to 2 lbs. I hope they reconsider this decision, but until then, I am unable to include international postage rates in my listings. I apologize for the inconvenience, but all international customers interested in purchasing an item from my shop will have to contact me so I can provide the shipping costs for your country.

In the USA -- I ship every week day, sometimes even the day of your order. All packages are sent USPS First Class or Priority depending on the size of the shipment. Shipping includes tracking and I will send you the tracking number when I notify you that I have shipped your package. Please let me know if you would like expedited shipping.

For International Customers -- at this time USPS First Class postage, tracking and insurance are available for the following countries only: Australia; Belgium; Canada; Croatia; Estonia; Finland; Germany; Hungary; Israel; Latvia; Lebanon; Lithuania; Malaysia; Malta; the Netherlands; New Zealand; Norway; Singapore; Slovak Republic; Spain; Switzerland; Turkey; and the United Kingdom. For all other countries, tracking is only available if I ship USPS Priority, which is very, very expensive.

For All International Customers -- the buyer is responsible for all international customs charges. Also, I fill out customs forms honestly, with the true value of the shipment. Generally, international delivery time should be about two weeks, but there may be delays due to customs (which are out of my control).
