Embossed Silver Belt Early 20th C Republic of Georgia
A silver belt from the Republic of Georgia is made of 30 separate rectangular segments covering leather. The embossed Victorian-look design is similar to sketches in “Ethnography of Georgia” by Nino Brailashvili, Khelovneba Publishing, Tbilisi, 1990, illustration 139. The book describes the work done by Georgian artisans in numerous silver and gold workshops that once were concentrated along one narrow street in Tbilisi. Silver content on this piece is 37 percent. This early 20th century belt is in very good condition and measures 32 ˝” (82 cm) in length.
