A William Hair Haseler (probably for Liberty & Co) silver flower buckle.  Birmingham 1906. Close variant of model 10208 Liberty silver sketch book, page 189.

A Liberty & Co  silver, enamel and pearl geometric buckle.  Unmarked. Sketch book model number 8682, page 183.  The quality of this buckle is so exceptional I think it was probably bought in from an independent workshop, not Haselers, and that may explain why it is unusually unmarked.

A Liberty Cymric silver enamel buckle, probably designed by David Veazey or Archibald Knox.  Birmingham 1907.  Model 157, page 178, Liberty silver sketch book.
