Very rare antique Sino-Thai solid silver mesh belt with magnificent repousse peony or chrysanthemum flower and flora motif on the buckle and side pieces. Made by a skilled local (Bangkok) Chinese silversmith dating to ca. 1850. Exquisite hand made workmanship and stamped/hallmarked with chinese characters on the inside of the buckle. This type of elegant silver belt was worn by Thai nobility or wealthy ladies in the 19th Century. Practically impossible to find nowadays. Condition good overall and wearable, some signs of usage/aging. Size: L. 29" (74 cm.) x H. 3/4" (1.75 cm.), but can be adjusted to smaller size/waist. Weight: 138 grammes.
