1930s Bunny & squirrel applique felt lace up belt - Extra small Small
An adorable and so of-the-time 1930s handmade belt, in dusky pink felt backed with lime green, constructed in three panels joined by fagotting embroidery stitch. Depicted woodland critters are bunnies, butterflies and squirrels, with acorn and oak leaf detail to the centreback. Fastening with silky cord in slate blue-grey, lacing through hand worked eyelets.
Fits about 24.5" waist fully closed, to about 26 still allowing a little tie/bow. Could be worn by larger size if you replace the cord with a longer one
2 7/8" wide
Presents well, as pictured there is some fade to colour vibrancy to the sides, and some colour discrepancy to the cord which isn't noticeable when worn. About 4 little dot nibbles to the appliques, and 1/2" of the front stitching has been re-done in slightly different shade/width of orange cotton which again doesn't register on
