A fabulous belt of brass links and panels with ancient Assyrian motifs and ornamentation. The links are stamped with hand done repoussé. The centerpiece is 2 part buckle depicting two winged, human-headed bulls that were found at Dur-Sharrukin, an ancient Assyrian city dating before 700 BC. The side panels are ornamental scroll like motifs and the back panel depicts two Assyrian warriors killing a lion with spear and arrows. There is cuneiform like script above the lion.

The belt length is 26.5 inches and the links are 1.75 inches. There is a partial hallmark on the hook inside the belt that we cannot identify.

We believe this belt dates to the late 19th early 20th century.
