    Hi All,
    I picked this up today, 30"L, missing 3 rhinestones.
    From the back I was thinking Czech/Bohemia. I can't find my Baubles, buttons and beads book to see if anything in there, so I'm looking on-line and found only one but with a different back. Interesting how it is made, I thought the white bit was plastic but it is thread.
    Worth repairing or can it be used for crafting? (A jewelry Christmas Tree Picture).
    If repairing, the 2 stones can be taken from the end of the belt, 1 stone is missing there already, and use the 2 stones to replace the empty space on the buckle and the belt. lol, sounds easy enough but I've never repaired jewelry before.
    any information appreciated
    thanks for looking:)

    Repair. A very nice 1950s AB belt. How long is it?

    I'll go with 1950s then, it would come down to a smaller waist when fastened.

    Perish the thought. With a little black dress at a New Year's Eve party, champagne in hand.

    More likely to be American or British, with the AB. I used to have a 24 inch waist. (!)
