This vintage belt was made in the mid-late 1930s. It is tooled with a diamond pattern with alternating diamond clusters of small studs and colored jewels. The belt holes are grommets and there is a tooled keeper. The original belt buckle was missing when I bought the belt and I have added a Japanese reproduction buckle with a whirling logs motif, which is close to what this would have had when new. The loop for the buckle needs to be re-stitched, at some point before I got it, the original buckle was removed and the belt was re-stitched to a smaller position, indicating multiple owners over its lifetime, as someone else has punched additional holes in the end of the belt to expand it. The belt measures 34″ to the smallest hole, 37″ to the largest grommet, and 39 to the last informal (punched later) hole.
