This is the first book to present a complete look at women's fashion buckles. Belt buckles and clasps in four categories: glass, metal, plastic, and natural materials, plus shoe buckles and rare and unusual pieces are displayed in over one thousand color photographs, each captioned with a complete description, size, and price guide. A selected time line on manufacturing techniques and buckle history from about 1820 to 1960 as well as basic cleaning and repair techniques of buckles and similar jewelry are included. Fashion Buckles: Common to Classic is a must for jewelry and button collectors, dealers, and all persons fascinated with this form of fashion accessory.
Jerry McGrath, of Jenison, Michigan, has over 2,000 ladies' buckles in his collection. Janet Meana is a free-lance photo journalist from Michigan.
