|Lexicon category||3: Personal Artifacts|
Maple leaf and beaver motif enamelled belt buckle or pin (likely from the First World War era?).
The large size suggests that it might have been pinned onto a belt or sash? It is horizontally oval in shape, with an oval void in the centre through which one can see the back metal piece. The beaver motif is leftwards-facing and is at the top of the buckle or pin.
This item was first owned by a member of the Joseph Dobie family, possibly around 1875. The Dobie family farmed in Sullivan Township in the 19th-century.
It later belonged to Margaret Dobie of Owen Sound, Grey County. Margaret Dobie and her mother, Alice Dobie, moved in to Owen Sound in the latter part of the First World War. Ms. Dobie had four sisters.
