Vintage 1940's Red & Mother-of-Pearl Celluloid/Bakelite? Buckle Set

$ 25.00

Sold Out

Vintage 1940's Red & Mother of Pearl Belt Buckle - two pieces that toal 1.75" long and 1.25" wide.   This is a round ring that has a tongue shaped opposing side that slides in and locks into place.  The back side of the buckle is red and tests as bakelite - could just be plastic but I did use the Semichrome test and it does have a reaction - just not as strong as normal.   Layered on top of that is a tan colored mother-of-pearl celluloid or plastic.  This is very appealing with the red background being visible on the edges of the buckle.   It has a cut-out on each piece to  you to  attach your sash or belt - it is 3/4" wide.  You could use a 1/2" belt as well.  This has an art deco look to it. It is not signed.   This came from a PA estate sale.  It is in very good condition - like new.   See Photos. (Lot. Loc. W.1.7&2.417.4)

I do not store fine jewelry and for questions on fine jewelry please allow some time for a response.  I respond quickly but sometimes I cannot answer immediately and need a few hours until the answer can be provided.

 I will combine shipping across all venues. If you pay shipping ahead, I will refund the overage. 

Photos are magnified so things will appear larger than they are and they are likely in better condition than the photos depict due to the magnification.

 Thank you for stopping by.

Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.

I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.

In addition to this website, Maria's Vintage, I am on eBay as stampshopgirl, on Etsy as stampshopgirl, and on StorEnvy as Maria's. I have many vintage jewelry items and other vintage and new items - a very wide variety.

I will combine shipping, even if you buy items from one of my other stores. If you purchase one item and know you’ll be picking more, just email me and let me know and I will ship them at the same time and refund the shipping over the combined limit.

Given the number of different items I carry it is hard to know what combination of items can be purchased to pre-plan the shipping, so just email me and we will work it out to save you shipping charges whenever possible.
