Here is a marvelous, approximately 1920s, celluloid and filigree belt. I have worn this piece, on occasion, as a necklace. It is really terrific!

There are seven rectangular celluloid sections (2 3/8" by 1") overlaid with a smaller rectangular silver filigree design. Between each are three black rings connected with silver tone metal. The center of the belt has a much larger scalloped edge piece of celluloid (2 1/2" by 1 3/4"), also with the filigree piece at the center. From it dangle three sections of chain with silver tone dangles at the base; the silver metal on the dangle is very soft and it looks like one piece might be missing (no show on one of the back sides) and a bit of the design is missing at the tip on a couple of them. This is not distracting or a significant condition flaw in my opinion. The center chain is longest.

Condition on the belt, overall, is exceptionally good. The length of the belt is 37 1/2" so it will hang around your hips and then dip down up to 7 1/2" at the center. It looks fabulous on!

Such a terrific early 1900s piece that is wearable today in a variety of forms!
