Sterling Dragon Buckle

About

This wonderfully detailed, hand hammered buckle features a stylized dragon with huge claws and a forked tail. Abstract clouds swirl in the background. The front of the buckle is sterling silver, and the back is silver-plated copper. There is a maker's mark stamped on the back. Not sure of the exact age, but best guess is early 20th century.
