Highly ornate silver belt buckle with turquoise and coral Stones, Tibetan, 19th century, mounted on contemporary black leather belt. The silver buckle measures 7 1/4" wide, and is 1 1/2" deep, with two large bezel set coral beads and a turquoise stone between them. The black leather is 1 3/8" wide and 47 3/4" long. The sections with holes will adjust to waist size of 36 1/2" to 40", though more holes could be made to make it fit a smaller waist. The buckle is curved slightly from end to end and across, and is covered with swirling clouds or waves in high relief. Each coral bead has a drilled hole and measures roughly 12mm or about 1 1/8" in diameter. The turquoise stone is about 20mm wide. The stones are clear bright colors, and the silver is tarnished and has not been cleaned. As this item is antique and shows signs of wear and usage, it is sold as is. This is a gorgeous antique silver belt, of good size, fine craftsmanship, and ready to wear.
