Here, I’m offering a small collection of beautiful belt buckles in Egyptian style by Piel Frères. Designed in Paris around 1902 - 1903. Despite the unusual materials used, which was a fairly normal practice among Art Nouveau designers at that time, Piel Frères gained huge recognition and stood in one row with designers like Lalique and Frédéric Boucheron.
