More info

Normally made in England, these buckles were developed for both civilian and military use. When shoe leather wore out, the buckles were transferred to other shoes, attached to utility straps, carrying pouches and other items. Due to the range of uses, buckles were often passed down through generations of family members until eventually the interior metal wore out. After this, the outside rim of the buckle served yet another array of purposes such as joing straps or hanging objects on walls.
