Default Caucasus belt buckles and more...

I blame mahratt ...☺☻☺

who corrected me when I made a mistake thinking a filligree beltbuckle was from the Balkans but actually came from the Caucasus.

So instead of adding my new finding in the Bosnian bichaq thread, I better start a new thread in the corrrect chapter prior getting warned by a mod...☻☻☻

my latest "treasure" is neither a silver one nor a belt buckle but a brass silver plated bracelet.

So very interesting and I hope more of these kind of items will surface.
Do any of you have some or seen some ?

Anyway, thnx a lot mahratt for your guidance. Most highly appreciated !

Hello dear members,
I got this one,
I really like the niello work on these items.

Is it too written Caucasus on it ?

Kind regards

Yes. The buckle also says "Caucasus": "КАВК АЗЪ"

Great looking buckles (and bracelet) guys. I've always found these buckles interesting. Here is one of mine. I believe it's Caucasian. It's in good, serviceable condition, but does show regular usage. The only distraction is a pierced hole in the center cone. It just so happens that the tip of a kindjal blade fits in the hole perfectly. Makes me think the hole came about from a combat situation.
