This rare black lacquer Elsa Peretti buckle was done early in her career as a jewelry designer. It's unclear if it was done for Tiffany & Co, or earlier when she was designing jewelry for Halston. The buckle measures 3 1/2" (9.4cm) across at the widest point and from the top curve to the point. It comes with the original leather belt which is 44 1/2" (114 cm) long, not including the part that folds over to the keeper button, which is sterling silver. The belt is 5/8" (2 cm) wide. Dating back to 1975, this belt is in excellent vintage condition. It's a rare opportunity to own an early piece of Elsa Peretti's wearable art!
