Cute endearing child’s belt hook. The dragon is very protective and good luck for the child.

The belt buckle is silver and polishes up very well. The shape is a hook shape with the head of the dragon being the top of the hook. The scales of the dragon’s body appear in the middle with a web at the base. The head of the dragon is fierce with sharp teeth, whiskers, bulging eyes and horns. The back has a knob to attach to the robe.

There is a Chinese character on the back near the knob. (see detailed photo).
