This amazing artisan vintage belt buckle comes in four parts, three of them set with genuine colorful gemstones. There's agate, carnelian, turquoise, tiger eye, lapis, malachite, and others. They vary in size and are each bezel set into the gold-plated brass abstract forms.
At first, I was going to cut the old belt off but then I realized that you might want to see how this came together. Also, the belt happens to be made of genuine turquoise suede...very fine suede that has gotten a bit soiled over the years. But it's still soft as buttah.
The buckle is signed and though the signature is ALMOST legible, we just can't make out some of the letters and could not find the designer. Looks like a French or Italian name. One thing for sure, this was a very expensive belt. It came from a very high-end estate...everything designer.
We think the suede may be cleanable. The belt as shown measures 31 inches end to end...figure a 30 inch waist.
The buckle parts measure to 3 1/2 inches wide for the largest one. The back bars for belt to go through are about 1 1/2 inches wide each.
Between the weight of the gilded brass and the stones, the buckle with the belt weighs 374 grams.
A bit of age-related tarnish on the back of one of the pieces...nothing notable. Overall, in excellent vintage condition.
More than a buckle...it's signed art! (If you know the name, please let us know.)
