Art Deco Belt Buckle Blue Rhinestone on Purple Cloth 30s 40s
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a fabulous art deco belt buckle consisting of square facet cut blue glass stones set in two long white metal bars that are joined with clasps that are set with clear glass rhinestones. This art deco belt buckle has bars at the back to which one would sew the fabric of a belt, as is the case with the present belt to which the buckle is attached. I think that it dates to the 1930s, but it is possible that it dates to the early 40s. Please note that the buckle is rigid. The belt is made of purple toned cloth with a leatherette type backing.
Sizing: This art deco belt buckle measures 1 1/4” in width and 4 5/8” in height. The belt measures 35” around and the snaps close at between 31 1/2” and 33”
Condition: This art deco belt buckle is in very good condition with no signs of wear, but the cloth belt is distressed on the back side, including a tear of the backing at the snaps. The front has a few light whitish marks that I haven’t tried to remove, quite minor in any case.
This is a lovely art deco belt buckle - either wear it with the affixed belt or attach it to a belt of your own…..great addition to a collection or simply to use to decorate a dress!
