This belt and another in the collection, acc. no. 2010.110.75, are among the last pieces that Salgo acquired. Complete belts are rare, and in 1996, after decades of collecting, this piece appeared on the market. Salgo had the patience and knowledge to wait for pieces of this quality.

Important English, Continental and American Silver and Gold. Sale cat., Christie’s, New York, May 17, 2011, nos. 117-118.
