Vintage 30s Bakelite Buckle Red Yellow Art Deco Buckle
Bright colors of red and yellow with a bold geometric design of the period is featured on this striking vintage Art Deco Bakelite belt buckle, circa 1930s.
The festive looking two-piece buckle consists of a tomato red and butterscotch yellow bakelite, which have an almost “ying and yang” style design and fit, with a slight parallelogram shape when combined, hand carved ribbing along the sides, and raised black half ball shapes for a three dimensional effect.
*Please note – I can see a bit of clear adhesive residue along the balls, indicating a reattachment or reinforcement made at one time.
The buckle has embedded metal components in back, has a stamp for patent pending number 1965116 (granted in 1934), and measures approximately 2&1/4 inches high by 2&1/2 inches wide when combined.
