Gorgeous Victorian Era Mother of Pearl and Cut Steel Belt Buckle Clasp

This large round clasp is from the late Victorian era, I am thinking 1880s-1900 with the Eastlake influence to the carving and pierce work. Each half has a center of cut steel work and has a button style sewn on back. The hook and loop appear to be brass plated and are attached with a domed rivet. You can see the solder on the back quite well. It’s possible this was a set of buttons converted to a clasp, but if so, it was done amazingly well and in the period.

Marks: None

Size: when fastened: Length: 3.5”, Width: 1.5”

Condition: some discoloration and age to the metal parts, one side has some flaking off of the pearl only on the back.
