    Pablo, a nice period WW1 piece, not made from a belt buckle centre, but rather inspired by...there were a number of such "Patriotic" pieces in a range of items available at the front (Soldiers canteen) and on the home front, cigar/cigarette case, matchbox holder (as shown below), etc...all made from brass and using the buckle centre design. A nice piece.
    Prost ! Steve.

    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
    G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)
