ART NOUVEAU JAPANESE DRAGON FISHERMAN BELT BUCKLE $36 U.S.
I am selling my entire collection of Victorian and Vintage belt buckles. I have 3 dozen plus pieces and will be listing for the next couple of weeks. Some are sterling, Bakelite, Art Deco & Art Nouveau, just some great treasures so, bookmark the site and be patient while I try to get them all up. This is a wonderful belt buckle with 2 very interesting scenes. In the top circle is what appears to be a Japanese man in a boat with a pole or fishing (not sure which). On the bottom is a bird-like dragon the flows up on the right side. I think it is made from a brass with a gold wash on the front. The belt buckle measures 3" long x 2" wide. I believe it is from the Art Nouveau era. It is quite interesting and unique!!!
