Vintage 1973 Mimi di N Whale Buckle Belt

Description

This is a vintage 1973 signed Mimi di N green belt with gold tone “kissing whales” buckle.

The green belt measures 1/2” wide and 28” long. This belt is adjustable, and can be lengthened to measure 29” and can be shortened considerably. The vegan (faux leather) strap was designed to be trimmed to the desired length by the wearer.

Mimi di Niscemi is highly collectible. Her costume jewelry designs were featured on the covers of Vogue and Harpers Bazaar in the 1960’s and 70’s. These copyrighted works of art were hand finished by jewelers to the same standards of her jewelry . Mimi di Niscemi’s belt buckles are on permanent display at Yale University’s Museum of the Decorative Arts.

This belt is in very good vintage condition. There is some minor wear of the gold tone finish on the eyes and tail edges.
Buckle is structurally sound and intact. The strap is in excellent condition, no cracking or fading. Please see all photos.

Ordered this because I moved from New England and I was missing the snow. Arrived the day of the “bomb cyclone.” 😂Stunning! The shop photo didn’t really do it justice. Even more lovely than I anticipated! It also came beautifully wrapped with a handwritten thank you note (!). **WOWWW** factor! Thank you for a gorgeous piece and an incredible experience! Went a long way to easing homesickness. 👍🏻
