Here is a vintage bright turquoise blue belt made of silky braided cords and embellished with sea shells. The base for the shells is woven cord and very sturdy. The large shell is a highly polished mother-of-pearl, and it is surrounded by smaller shells arranged in a flower-like design. The long ropes slip through the loop on the end and tie, so this belt is adjustable for any size waist. The ropes will hang down and the ends are decorated with more small shells. There is no maker identification, and I was told this type of belt was popular in the 1980s.
CONDITION: Excellent; no issues that I can see. It is very clean and ready to wear, and doesn't look to be worn at all. This is from a pet-free and smoke-free environment.
MEASUREMENTS: Main part with shells - 15 inches in length * Ties: 29.5 inches and 31 inches in length * Whole belt is 46 inches in length
As much as we try to get the exact shade of the blue cords in the photos, different monitors cause photos to look lighter or darker; we can not guarantee that the actual color will be the same as the one in the photo.
