Vintage Ottoman Style Turkish Silver Belt Narrow with Floral Buckle Hand Wrought

I am excited to present this beautifully made Ottoman style Turkish silver belt with double braided strands and a floral embellished 2-piece buckle. It has a very nicely crafted screw-in type fastener at its center, which I believe is to be worn at the bottom of the buckle because of the way that it rotates (but you can wear it however you wish). The double flattened braids have fixed floral stations placed at regular intervals around the belt, although the first one on the right is a little further from the buckle than the one on the left (I doubt you would really notice this when worn).

It has a beautiful patina which I would not polish, but simply wipe with a soft, dry cloth. The piece is unmarked, so it is most likely post-WWI (Ottoman pieces were usually marked). It looks like 800 silver (untested, unmarked). It was collected in Turkey in the 1970’s. This elegant old belt is in very fine condition without losses or breaks. There is a small amount of a cement-like material visible on close inspection where the hollow buckles are joined to the belt. Quite striking, with exquisite old world craftsmanship. Total chic.

This item will be presented in an embroidered silk pouch, but without a gift box due to its size, and mailed USPS Insured. International shipping will be USPS Insured Registered.

SIZE: 30-3/4”L (clasped) x 7/16”W. Buckle = 1-3/4”W x 15/16”H

WEIGHT: 2.892 oz.
