This belt has a deep rich garnet color that these photos do not do justice.
It is probably from the 1930’s, as velvet gowns were all the rage then, and adding dress clips and extravagant buckles were part of that “look”. I have paired it with a 1900’s Tea Dress in other photos, as it has the right proportion for that era as well.
Width at center front: 3 1/2”
Narrows to 1 5/8” where it attaches to the self covered buckle.
30” inches from buckle tongue to tip of belt, with the furtherest out grommet hole 27 3/4” from the tip of the belt. The velvet is folded over 1” behind the buckle, and by adding another grommet, this could conceivably be lengthened to 29”
Rhinestones are bright, and set in a dimensional frame that mimics the look of lacing.
