This great thick old belt buckle is made of genuine Bakelite in two colors...black and butterscotch (aka orange).
The two colors are centered with a small dome of brass. It gives the buckle the look of comic character eyes.
Buckle measures 3 7/8 inches across by 1 7/8 inches high. It's about 1/2 inch thick. The silvertone back shows some age-appropriate tarnish.
One interesting quirk to this...one side of the buckle has an edge with a slightly scalloped finish. It runs about an inch and then goes smooth like the rest of the buckle. Seems like the carver was going to try something and then decided not to.
Excellent vintage condition. Circa 1930s.
