    It is gorgeous, Charlie, beautiful design and colours.
    I think you're right about Art Nouveau. The later years of the period, early 20th century.
    A bit of enamel loss is not a disaster. Besides, our kyratango has a solution for that. Just enter kyratise in the search box, and you will find examples of her restoration work on enamel.

    Results in a quick search produced a few that are somewhat similar, all described as art nouveau. Love the colors of this one.

    Beautiful, Charlie!
    I think when searching add “forget me nots” might narrow the field. (Someone can jump in, if they’re not forget me nots, as I’m not positive) :smuggrin:

    It will affect it, but not badly. I would buy it for a nice price if I still wore belts, I would probably do a reversible repair on it.

    By search box I meant the one at the top of this page btw, our kyra is a valued forum member who kyratises wounded jewellery.:nurse::)

    thanks aj, i looked at some of her restoration work, and its fantastic

    but above and beyond what my sausage fingers could do

    Think British nurse's belt, that style, but with a much prettier dress or skirt.

    Like the one AJ shows us, more like ribbons than what we now think of as a belt.

    Absoutely not forget me nots, the leaves are totally wrong. it's a native geranium. If you google on Geranium Johnson's Blue, that's pretty similar. Cranesbill if you want a common name.
