The Black Watch

Reminiscent of the famous Scottish tartan in colour, this Art Deco buckle necklace embraces the dark blues and greens of its title, The Black Watch….

An extraordinary example of Art Deco enamelling this buckle encompasses both the Champlevé and Guilloché enamelling techniques and is likely to have been made in France.  The design is the notable geometric and sunray pattern, typical of the Art Deco era and is in mint condition and has probably never been worn.  A very rare example of a buckle in such an extraordinary condition.  

It is suspended on two strings of peacock dark grey 4/5mm freshwater baroque pearls, alternating with dark emerald green 5mm round tiger’s eye beads.  Tiny bronze glass spacers pick up the Champlevé raised edges of the brass buckle base.   The two matching knotted (on silk) strands measure 68cms (27inches) and 62cms (24.5 inches).  

 

The buckle measures 5cms (2 inches) long, and 2.5cms (1 inch) at its widest point.  Buckle necklaces are designed for the buckle ‘clasp’ to be worn at the side front and will slip over the head without opening.

The necklace is sold with a pair of gold-plated hook backed drop earrings made from matching beads and pearls, for pierced ears.
