Victorian Cloak Closure Large Round Cut Steel Riveted Beads

Cut steel beads became popular as early as the 1700's when they were used for buckles and buttons. In later periods, they were used for almost every type of jewelry. They were popular because the densely cut steel beads would reflect candle light like precious stones. But the pieces were inexpensive enough for the middle class.

Each bead is hand cut with many facets to add sparkle. Then the beads are riveted to thin sheets of metalto produce the final design.

This cloak closure is a later piece and probably dates to the late Victorian era. A circle of faceted, cut steel beads surrounds a floral central design. The design in the center is composed of a circle of open-petal flower beads and additional cut steel beads. There is a hook and eye for the closure. There are alsotwo loops, or eyes on the reverseso that the closure can be sewn onto a garment.

The piece still has its original patina, and still has a lot of sparkle. The hook and eye closure has become dull over time. There is a single small break in the circle on the closure with the eye. There is no corrosion or rust.

Each side measures 1-1/2" in diameter. The total width when the hook are eye are attached is 4".
