ON HOLD FOR A GAL WITH GREAT TASTE...do not purchase this item...

International buyers please convo me with your country for a shipping quote :)

Unbelievably amazing repousse silver plated belt, c1910s...
Signed for the company Fishel Nessler FNCO with a crest and crown...
Art nouveau gothic design...
The silver has a deep, rich patina...
Exquisite figural roaring lion heads with diamond paste rhinestone eyes...
Charming flowing haired goddesses...
Thick chain, one end retaining a Victorian tassel with serpentine chains...
Wear as a belt or a massive statement necklace!

Condition is good: It is missing the clip or closure mechanism. I always meant to get a simple clip so you can adjust it to any length, but never got around to it. No missing stones. As mentioned a very deep patina, I would leave alone. Some minor brassing on high relief points. Mild dings to the reverse here and there. One of the little chains does not have a ball like the others.

Length of chain only (not tassel) tip to tip is 38". Length of chain on left is 3 1/4" and on the right much longer at 13 3/4". The middle lion face is1 3/4" by 1 3/4" .

Exceedingly rare with both the lion and lady motifs on one piece. Didn't photograph well, so cool in person!

Thanks for visiting!
