About

Chanel belt circa 1980
The lion, an emblem of strength, embodies the spirit of Coco Chanel. She was born under the sign of Leo and the lion was an omnipresent symbol for her.

This rare gold tone gilded metal belt evokes in a single piece of jewellery Chanel's amazing creative energy.
The belt is constructed by a series of seventeen identical sunburst medallions linked together by double rings. Each medal features a beautifully moulded lion head.
Chanel's iconic symbols, the interlocking C's framed the lion's head to create the mane.
Closure is with a hook to an adjustable chain.
