First here is this beautiful 16th century Hungarian belt buckle, decorated with pearls and rubies:

Somewhat later is one of my favorite pieces from the Salgó-collection, a spice canister from 1681, commissioned by Michael Teleki, chancellor of Mihály Apafi, Prince of Transylvania. Once again the image below is from the 1996 catalog - a brief description is given by the Metropolitan Museum collection database.

There is a lot more in the collection. I will give an update here, once more images will be added to the collection database of the museum.
