Really old Buckles

Buckles from London
Buckles from England

Years ago I found this at a Haberdashery supplier in Collingwood, Melbourne when they were closing down.  The buckles are on heavy card, backed with felt … on closer inspection I find it hard to guess what they were used for.  Women’s apparel?  Hmmmm maybe not.   Men’s wear?    Hmmmm not sure about that.  Kids clothes, uniforms?

What do you think?

    I think the strange little rounded, smooth, beautiful wooden shape, may have been used for darning socks.
