I wish you could feel this suede. I believe it is lamb- it is supple and soft- especially for it's age. I'm thinking early 1970s. Sash style that is wider in the center of the belt than on the ends. Beautiful handmade wood buckle with two tones- darker in the center of the circle than on the ends. Just lovely and perfect to tie over a light sweater dress. I know the photo makes the leather look worn, but I assure you it is in perfect vintage condition. No stains or scratches. This belt is about 32" long and is available for $75.
