Leather belt with German silver conchos / Unknown


This belt is made of dark brown leather with silver conchos attached. There is a second strap of leather and conchos that is attached to one end of the main belt. The main belt is wider than the additional part and the conchos on it are larger than the ones on the other piece. One end of the main strip has been broken off right past the first hole. The smaller strip of the belt is attached at this broken end by a leather thong. The far end of the smaller strip has a long rectangular piece of metal with geometric designs at one end covering the strip of leather almost to the very end.
