Art Deco 1920's beaded belt and a great example of Egyptian revival styling that was so popular at the time.
Made up of four overlapping panels and two tassels which fall straight down in the front. The beads are metal in tones of copper orange and graphite grey. Along the edges rope like twisted metal provide subtle detail as well as support for the beading. The backing seems to consist of layers of satin and cotton mesh.
The closure is made up of two snaps.
The condition is very good aside form some loose threads at the edges and wear of the backing (shown in last picture). This piece is still very sturdy and wearable (with some care of course) And would look stunning over a satin slip dress.
It should fit on the lower waist or high hip.
It measures 31 inches at the inner circumference.
