100% ORIGINAL VINTAGE.............MONKEY FACE BAKELITE 2 PIECE BELT BUCKLE. The actual BRASS MONKEY FACES are Stamped RAISED & in RELIEF with GREEN BAKELITE HATS. The Monkeys are dressed in SIUTS which are Carved into the Butterscotch Bakelite then HAND PAINTED with Brown Jackets & RED Ties. The minor chipping to the Original Paint does not detract from overall. COLLECTORS FIND. This piece has been in my Personal Collection since the 1980's. ALL 100% ORIGINAL.....1940. The Belt loops are RIVETED ON.....a tad rusty but nothing more than Normal Vintage Wear. (did not try to clean....Collectors Choice to do so). The Clasp is also Riveted On & in Perfect working order. The BRASS MONKEY FACES are are RIVETED ON, as well. Supremely made.......Masterful in its Execution. I have them taped together on the back merely to keep them safe. THER ARE NO CHIPS OR CRACKS. ............In Lovely Condition..........again, Normal Vintage Wear. As a whole they measure 4 1/4" across x 2 3/4" from top of Hats to bottom. I see no reason these pieces can not be re-done into Pendants or Brooch OR Perfectly left ORIGINAL. I have ONLY EVER seen this Buckle in a book before I was lucky enough to come across such a piece during my Bakelite Hunting Days. Further Q's please Convo...............Thank You!!!
