A Rare Find indeed.
Vintage Late 60's Early 70's Medusa Head Belt Buckle with Original Black Leather Belt.
Art Nouveau in style.
The detail on her face and snake hair is incredible.
Patina that can only be found after the passage of time.
We were told by the original owner that he purchased the belt in New York in 1967.
I am sure this belt has been some incredible places and heard some incredible music.
I believe it to be made of pewter.
The piece is unsigned that I know of.
It may be signed where the buckle attaches but the belt is original to the piece and we cannot in good conscience remove it to see.
Thank-you to a fellow Etsian that said they have a very similar piece that is hand engraved not stamped, ROBERTS in cursive.
Buckle Measures 3" in Length and 2 3/8" in Width
Belt Approx 40" in length not including Buckle.
Belt and Buckle are in Very Good Condition.
Buckle has the oh-so-slightest rub/dent at the tip of the nose-you have to look very hard to see this. See close-up photo.
Belt has, to be expected, slight wear distress around the holes that the buckle fits into.
Belt closes with no issues.
8 Holes appear original the 9th one seems to have been added later.
We have a Nonsmoking Home but the belt does have a very slight smoky smell, but I can detect smoke from 20 blocks away.
