Late Deco period large, natural MOTHER of PEARL dressy Belt BUCKLE is 2.5 x 1.5 in. with a 2 7/8" opening. Brilliant pastel colours. Up to 1/8" thick- it has been hand-sculptured with a raised curve. Very good pre-worn condition with minor wear where the prong makes contact. [not at all apparent or affecting the integrity]. Also some very shallow marks on the middle back that also are probably from contact with some part of the original belt. See pictures. The 7/8" prong is a dark brassy colour with no rust. The body colour of the mother-of-pearl is warm to yellowish pearly white with brilliant pastel flashes in pinks and blues. This is a solid buckle, able to take a lightweight suede or fabric belt or sash of 2 5/8 in. wide. Probably from the late 1930's, a real beauty, unusually thick and alive with colour.
