Angled Close-Up of Belt Buckle Set
The sterling silver 4-piece 1861-R is engraved on a version of the Adirondack II buckle blank with two narrower keepers instead of one wide.
The Adirondack II belt buckle is assembled from 5 pieces of silver and gold using tiny jeweler's screws. The oval
centerpiece is sandwiched between the body of the buckle and the backplate. The layers of metals on this set, as well as
the engraved design, gives it a 3-dimensional, sculptural look. In addition to the obvious running leaf-patterns, it has a
great variety of border-patterns. Not the least of which is the double border on the tip, each with a rose and two rosebuds.
Ever pursuing new limits and perspectives on buckle-making, Neil's new Americana Collection is
the height of craftsmanship and artistry. These belt buckles are inspired by ornamentation on 19th century
American guns, which were mostly engraved by German and Austrian immigrant craftsmen. Among them, engraving by
German immigrant LD Nimschke is the most well-known and well-documented, and as such, Neil has found much
inspiration perusing the book of "smoke-prints" of Nimschke's work. Pieces in the Americana Collection
are simply numbered from 1851 - to as close to 1900 as Neil gets before his body gives out. His goal is to engrave
50 pieces for this collection.
The 1861-R Adirondack II 1" (25mm) ranger set looks very handsome on any color strap.
