A paktong (nickel silver or cupronickel) belt, ca. 1930. The design with the Quilin and flower decoration is typical Straits Chinese as is the type of belt. The lenght is 74cm suggesting it was made for a child. The buckle measures 8x6,5cm and the plaques 3,5x4cm. Weight is 178 gram. It is in vey good condition with slight traces of wear from use and slight dark oxidation at spots where it has not been cleaned. A closer study shows that the engraving has been done by hand as it differs slightly from plaque to plaque. It may well originate from the former Dutch East Indies.
