This is the most incredible piece of Unger Brothers I have ever owned. It is immense. Measuring over 6 inches wide and 3.25 inches high, it also weighs a heavy 2.03 ozt. This would have been on the front of a belt, or girdle, made wholly of sterling silver. A sash would run through the loops and the belt would hook on the back.
This is such a beautiful example of Unger Brothers art nouveau jewelry, one of the finest examples in my opinion.
Through the entire piece there are sea monsters weaving in and out of the numerous flowers. The woman in the middle looks similar to Unger pattern "Evangeline".
I have only seen one entire Unger Brothers sterling belt, it was over 5000 dollars and was a much more simple pattern.
Of course there are flaws on this 100 year old item. The front is crisp, no problems worth mentioning. The reverse is a different story. It has been repaired in 5 places with lead.
It is clearly marked "STERLING 925 FINE" and the Unger hallmark on the reverse.
Please ask any question and take a look at my other unusual Unger Brothers sterling items.
