Renoir 1950s "Beatnik" Copper Belt

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

In the 1950s, copper jewelry was favored by the Beat Generation who eschewed more precious metals and jewels. Malleable and easy to shape, it is a handsome metal in its own right. This copper belt is beautifully designed and sits perfectly on the waist. The ingenious closure is a length of chain between two copper buttons.The back has an interesting half moon detail. A wonderfully unique piece.
