Antique Handwoven Ethnic Tribal Silver Belt

This exquisite belt is a true treasure from India's rich cultural heritage. Crafted over a century ago, at the end of the 19th century, this stunning piece showcases the exceptional artistry and skill of its makers.
The belt is made of fine silver, featuring a long, decorative buckle adorned with intricate floral motifs. Attached to the buckle are two beautifully woven silver metal chains (karmapatti) in a wheat pattern, held together by 13 small, decorated circular ties. The finely crafted buckle is a work of art in itself, with a screw mechanism which turns counter-clockwise and slots into an ingenious hidden notch.
One of the most captivating aspects of this antique belt is its well-preserved patina and wear, which speak to its long and storied history. Many of our customers appreciate and value this vintage aesthetic, as it adds to the belt's character and authenticity. However, if you prefer a softer, more polished look, the belt can be easily cleaned to reveal its gleaming silver surface.
This timeless piece is not only a collectible item but also a true heritage item, a testament to the enduring craftsmanship and artistry of India's past, and a must-have for any discerning collector or lover of fine, handcrafted accessories.
