Rare 1920s Art Deco Glass Beaded Drop-Waist Flapper Belt -- Near Mint Condition!
This exquisite piece is perfect for the 1920s vamp, the Art Deco collector or a museum collection. It is a stunner!
This piece is meticulously hand beaded with thousands of glass seed beads in shades of red, black, gunmetal and fuchsia in a beautiful lattice, floral and ying-yang design. Each oval flower section is surrounded by 8 faceted round black glass beads. Each flower is accented with a square faceted carnelian celluloid bead.
Belt is backed in silk crepe and fastens in the back with three metal snaps. It is meant to sit at the hips in a drop-waist fashion.
Width: 2.75" (Oval flower sections are 4")
Belt is wearable and shows very little signs of wear. Silk backing is faded and has a little weakness at the oval sections. There also is some sort of glue or melted rubber band residue on the back (See photo). Does not detract.
