Arnoldsche, 2000 - Art - 231 pages
This publication presents almost 200 Art Nouveau buckles with floral and geometric designs from England, Europe, and the US. Besides industrially produced objects, there are also excellent handcrafted examples, including numerous one-of-a-kind pieces.
In addition to a short history of buckles and fashions at the turn of the century and a discussion of stylistic characteristics, further information on signatures and marks provide both the layman and the specialist with important new points of reference.
