    This is an unusual two-piece Vintage Faux Coral Belt Buckle, measuring 2.5" (64mm)high by 3" (76mm) wide.  The background has an openwork design of abstract geometric leaves made from a silver tone pot metal.  The faux deep coral embellishments, made from a vintage plastic to look like cabochons, include: a 1" (26mm) oval center piece, thirty-two 0.3125" (8mm) surrounding ovals, and two 0.1875" (5mm) in diameter round side pieces.  Each is set in a crimp edged bezel.  The two sides of the buckle are linked by a simple hook and eye closure and there are two 1.75" bars, each with three holes, for attachment to a fabric or leather belt.  The buckle is unmarked.  Maker and age are unknown.  This Vintage Faux Coral Belt Buckle is in Very Good condition with two small holes in the center bezel (which may be have occurred in the molding process) and minor surface wear to the metal surfaces on back.
