Antique vintage Czech Art Deco Dragon design belt buckle jewelry making steel mold die press stamp. This is a very rare original jewelry hub, intricately hand engraved with a beautiful Chinese style dragon. This is known as a master hub, from which a mold would be made in a softer metal. The mold would then be used for making the finished buckle, not the master hub. Master hubs were incredibly expensive to make and were kept under lock and key and were the prized possesions of jewelry designers. 
This is extremely heavy, weighing nearly 5kg and is made from toughened steel. In excellent condition for the age with some corrosion which can easily be removed. 
A rare antique piece of jewelry making history.

This could still be used for press molding jewelry findings, art design, home decor or for general hobby crafting with metal, clay, resin, plastic, plaster, leather or soft metals.
