Last 3 Rare Belt Buckles 1930's Marbled Catalin Phenolic & Wood NOS not perfect
Here are 3 unusual 1930's belt buckles. They are old store stock that we purchased with a large group of vintage jewelry and accessories from a man who rescued them from the basement storage of a 1930's-40's New York City dress shop when the building was demolished about 30 years ago.
- These are the last of this type that we have. They have age related damage but they are weird and interesting. Maybe you can use them, or parts of them, in an art, craft, or jewelry project.
- They are rosewood and Catalin (or other phenolic more stable than Bakelite as they do not respond to Simichrome test although many other items from this lot did test as Bakelite)
- Butterscotch - 2" high x 3-1/2" wide - one side is in excellent condition - the other side has darkening and crackles around openings for the wooden hooks and at one end and oxidation on metal belt connector on that side.
- Black - 1" high x 3" wide - excellent condition.
- Red - 1" high x 3" wide - The red sections are in excellent condition but 1 wooden hook is broken off. They are tricky to hook which is probably how this one got broken.
- Hold the side to be hooked with the curved back facing the curved back of the other side and slide the wooden hooks down over the metal rods; then turn both pieces to the horizontal position.
