Gilded buckle

The second ReInHerit performance

Gilded buckle (or "poukla" as it is called in Cypriot sources), consisting of three pieces of silver leaf. This particular piece of jewellery was used to close the belt around the waist. It is decorated with large rosettes and other smaller floral designs such as leaves, flowers and stems. This is the work of a local silversmith, and behind each piece there are plates for fastening to the belt.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101004545.
