High quality antique belt, Victorian or art nouveau. The buckle features the god Pan or a satyr, in 3D relief with a couple of cherubs around his head and 2 gargoyle heads above.
The 4 medallions which make up the belt feature 3 cherubs at play and they are linked together with a very nice art deco chain. It is 24 long and would be very easy to lengthen via the addition of a few links between the medallions. Each piece of the buckle is marked 800, and all other parts test as 800. I would guess that each piece was cast, with some details enhanced by hand. At any rate, this is a substantial and unique piece which would be stunning if worn, or would be a great addition to a collection.
