Cheers yep she wants to sell it too. We had a collector in the eastern states who documents all cricket buckles says its the only example he has ever seen.
We will do some more research and try find what its worth and hope to get lisa a good amount for it. Sadly its damaged but i think it should still sell well

It looks like a keyhole plate off a trunk or something similar. If it was near the ornamental one on the previous page, they may have been off the same trunk. That one looks like a decorative piece to me.

Some great finds there but the cricket buckle is a beauty. I’m thinking the bearded England player depicted on the buckle would appear to be a representation of W.G.Grace. Grace is considered to be one of the founding fathers of modern test cricket. Check his profile and picture Wikipedia. Bazz.

Thanks all. Lisa is blown away the interest the buckle has created. Anyone know if these were an item regular public could buy at the time or were they given to the acual players of the side?
