You know this belt is from another era because those big black button-like cabochons look so 'different'. As best as we can define them, we'd call them 'taffeta brocade'.

There are nine of them along the gilded brass chain belt, each set in a bezel. They're glossy with a wavy nap that has a brocade texture. Two of them are the end dangles. They're two-sided and topped with Art Nouveau finials.

The belt measures 52 inches end-to-end. The button cabs are 1 1/4 inches across. The two dangles are 2 1/4 inches long. One of the near-end cabs has a fishhook back that fits into any of the chain holes. That gives the belt a wearable size of 36 to 42 inches.

The brass metal has not been polished as we leave the original patina as found. Therefore, there's a little bit of verdigris at the Art Nouveau dangle edges.

Overall, this rare Victorian accessory is in excellent condition. The button cabs are all perfect with no signs of fray or wear. In fact, this material looks like it's impenetrable. Circa 1890.
