This is a silver plated Peranakan Chinese (Straits Chinese) belt. I am not sure what the actual metal underneath is but it feels very light compared to the other silver belts I owned. I suspect this was made relatively more recent. The height of the Peranakan culture was the rally 1900s, which coincided with the Art Nouveau and Edwardian period. This feels like a more modest imitation of the real deal, and the listing price here reflects that. It still requires and considerable skill to make and it is a good substitute to wear around with modern clothing and spare the owner any palpitations during the rough and tumble of daily wear.
Length of belt is approximately 70 cm, width 4 cm and buckle 8x9 cm.
This is an old item, so there are signs of wear and repairs.
