CHINESE CINNABAR LAQUER - BUCKLE & 6 BUTTONS

Here are 6 Chinese cinnabar lacquer buttons and a buckle.  They are not matching but were probably bought together.  They have a Chinese paper label and were probably from the 1920/30s.  The buttons are slightly darker and the buckle.  Full description on my web site - www.gillianhorsup.com - price £95 reference 2732 C5/1.  Chinese cinnabar lacquer is built up layer by layer and then carved.  The imitations are made of plastic.  It would be easy to make a belt with this buckle.
