The logo is true Americana. That ~GE~ conjoined letters symbol has been around for decades. Most people would know that GE stands for General Electric.
This solid brass buckle (with a bronze tone finish) is from the 1920s. But the secret is...it didn't start out as a buckle. This was, in fact, the center emblem of a 1920s GE electric blade fan. Those big ones...before A/C came along. (See photo)
The buckle measures 3 1/2 inches across and still has its four holes where it connected to the fan's center. The back has the appropriate 1 7/8 inch wide bar to hold a leather or cloth belt with a hook that goes into a hole on the other end of the belt. The buckle weighs 157 grams.
This old GE fan plaque was cool back in the 1920s. It's even cooler as a buckle.
