  • I've never seen one of these. It's gorgeous and obviously beautifully made. I love the vintage advertisement. Is the belt also part of the Collins collection?

  • I don't remember seeing this belt, but we have others, including this one: http://www.enidcollection.com/item/33/

  • The belt is delicious! From a fashion perspective, it's interesting to note the contrast of the conservative crisp gloves intersecting with the ethnic inspired print of the skirt. The Congo #2 ornament is wonderful. It reminds me of the Easter Island Moai. I wonder if the intrepid expeditions of Michael Rockefeller inspired this theme? What year was this catalog published?

  • I'm guessing in the 1950s.
