    Navy Admiral or Officer full dress belt with dagger hangers, circa 1947 - 48 issue.

    Navy Admiral or Officer full dress belt with dagger hangers, circa 1947 - 48 issue.

    In gold bullion brocade with plush lining in black wool. Shows superb quality throughout. The massive buckle is in gilded brass - center piece showing anchor and star, the outer part having nicely sculptured oak and laurel wreath.

    The buckles on dagger straps feature snarling lion heads - the so-called "angry" lions introduced in 1947. Fully expanded, this belt should accommodate a waist as large as 48", but it is easily adjustable to any smaller size.

    In very good to excellent condition. The brocade is beautifully preserved, with without tears, loose strands or stains of any kind. Comes complete with all the hardware and both brocade belt loops present. The original gilt finish on the brass parts is exceptionally well preserved and bright. There are a few moth bites to the black backing material, but these of course are not visible from the front and to not affect the integrity or serviceability of the belt. There is no active moth problem.

    The type of belt with bullion brocade was largely replaced in the late 40s by the cheaper to manufacture silk brocade version. The earlier belts are both more spectacular and harder to find. They are essentially same as WW2 version used from 1941-47, with the exception of the "angry" lions (as opposed to "kind" lions on the dagger straps of the earlier admiral's belts.)
