Period: Late 19th Century
These leather, Victorian, piano mover's belts are as unusual as they are decorative. The leather is incredibly thick and strips of it have been carefully grafted together to form a 5.5m length which is finished off with quality, industrial looking buckles.
These belts are wonderful quality and have a lovely, industrial aesthetic to them - personally I think they make an excellent display as they are; purely decorative curiosities, however it's been suggested that they could be very successfully repurposed as part of hanging shelving units something similar.
When wrapped as they are in the photographs each belt is approximately 12cm high, and 28cm across. Unravelled they're around 5.5 meters long and have buckle holes for around 3 meters of the length.
