1960s Coca-Cola Brass Buckle Fake Tiffany Art Nouveau Leather Belt
This belt certainly could be called refreshing and delicious to some!
From the mid 1960s, buckles like these caused a massive stir in the fashion world. A rogue manufacturer started producing a whole range of buckles under the 'Tiffany' name, but the had nothing to do with the high end jeweller! The fakes fooled everyone and there was even a book produced!
This Coca-Cola buckle shows a rather bold topless care-free woman brandishing a Coke bottle in the style of Art Nouveau, which had seen a bit of a revival in the hippy age. How amazing would this look with a pair of denim flares, making a statement in more than one way!
• Topless woman to the front holding a bottle of Coke, with 'Refreshing and Delicious' tag line, in an Art Nouveau style
• Coca_Cola and Tiffany Foundry on the front
• Coca-Cola Atlanta creation stamped to the back
• Tiffany Studio New York stamped to the back
• Heavy buckle made from brass
• Black leather belt 'Specially Handmade by Catras Leather of London
• There is some verdigris on the rivets and the buckle from age, but it is a very pleasant patina. The leather has been used and at a couple of holes is more soft thank others. There is also some rubbing to the edges, but all expected from age.
