Plaited horsehair belt, in white, black and brown, the brown possibly of a non-horsehair material, with a curved rectangular buckle, pierced to form a diamond in the middle, with a floral design in the centre of the diamond. The curved rectangle edges and the diamond edges are decorated with rocker stamp engraving. The buckle seems to be of silver, with a base metal slide. The slide contains the tasselled ends of the belt which can be pulled back and forth to tighten, and then knotted.
