VERY GOOD. These Georgian Silver Paste Opaline and Vauxhall glass buckles are in very good condition. Each stone is securely set and each Paste gemstone has retained its wonderful twinkle, designed to glisten under candlelight. As her stones are closed back, it is important not to get the gemstones wet as this will seep behind into the settings and damage them. The use of Vauxhall glass confirms that these buckles are of English prominence from around the 1800s. The Silver has minimal wear, especially considering her age at over 200 years old, and they have accrued a lovely patina.
