We've sold a good number of Mimi di N belt buckles over the decades but this one definitely takes the prize. It's one of the biggest, most awesome, most impressive, most substantial Mimi buckles we've ever had. It's a pair of elephant heads, either trunk wrestling or getting romantic. They have glass eyes and are looking at each other with serious intent...to win the wrestling match or couple up.

This is a rare Mimi silvertone buckle, made in 1990. The two-piece buckle measures 5 1/2 inches across by 2 1/2 inches high. It weighs 193 grams.

The silvertone elephants are highly detailed. They have a textured grainy surface...just like an elephant.

The back has two bars for the leather (or fabric) belt which takes a width of just under 1 1/4 inches wide. Marked MIMI DI N - 1990.

Buckle is in excellent vintage condition. No wear to the silvertone. Both winners of the match.

About Mimi - The jewelry company, Princess Mimi di Niscemi, existed from 1960 to 1990. The Italian born designer went to America to study at the Philadelphia School of Industrial Arts. While attending school, she also worked in the evenings at jewelry houses for Elsa Schiaparelli and Arnold Scaasi.

Mimi also worked and collaborated with such Haute Couture houses as Robert DeMario (1959) and “Brania” (1960s).

After honing her talent in the best fashion houses, in 1960, Madame Mimi di Niscemi opened her own company in New York. Her large outrageous belt buckles became very popular. And this one illustrates why.
