Fine 1934 Deco Cherry Red Bakelite Buckle Never Worn
Sold; thank you! $75.

From a West Coast etate, this fabulous two-part vintage buckle has the patent number 1965116, which allows to date it precisely to 1934. By American 75-year standards, it will be officially "antique" in just one year, and yet it's seen no use! I was the first person to bend the chrome hook and close the buckle, when making sure it will be sturdy and wearable for you.

The material has been tested and it's genuine bright cherry red catalin Bakelite. The design, fluted and indented on both sides, resembles pretty fans or clam shells. Size is a whopping 3 3/4" by 1 3/4" when the two parts are joined and brackets will take a belt or sash up to 7/8" wide. The only flaws I can find are a small area of discoloration on the chrome fitting in back and, under extremely high magnification, a few teensy-teensy surface abrasions froms storage. To the naked eye, this jewel truly looks brand-new.

Thanks for looking!
