    This is a truly remarkable artifact to have survived from the 1960's San Francisco Hippie Era. Personally, I think this may be the greatest 1960s belt ever made. Style, color, size - it has it all... Seller in conjunction with the owner described it like this "This is a gorgeous handmade, hand painted one of a kind leather belt with abalone inlay & purple suede backing. It was made by a very talented leather artisan in a Art Nouveau design and purchased in San Francisco in the 60s. It was proudly worn in the Haight-Ashbury district and admired by many. Truly part of the 60s revolution's history! It <was> part of a Northern California art collection." Also he added this when I inquired "The original owner is my client. He and his wife lived in the Haight for years. She loved this belt and it was hand made for her. She died years ago and he is now selling it". It is distressing when I acquire items from those who lived the dream so to speak and have now passed too soon but gives me all the more passion to preserve their lives for future generations.
