VINTAGE STUDDED JEWELED BELT

Special for me 1936 Sears Roebuck 33L8825/26 (same 33D8825/26)


Sears original references
American Indian Design. Strong harness leather embossed in fancy design. Width, about 1 3/4 inches. Made in the heart of the west. Nickel plated buckle is an exact copy of a hand-made Indian buckle. A rich new pattern worked out in colored “jewel” stones and rivets to truly reflect the spirit of the old West.


Description
The newest Indian design buckle of those days is attached. Also the belt strap with this special is used. Since the buckle is written to be "an exact copy of a handmade Indian buckle" to the catalog, I am very interested in the original. A belt strap has a stamp of Made in the heart of the west, and was used only for this 33L8825/26(same 33D8825/26). The strap is not used for the belt of other types although the buckle is used also for the belt of other types. Moreover, since it is written "truly reflect the spirit of the old West", a special thought is felt.

OUR DISTINCTIVE WESTERN BELTS

Howdy,
This is ACE WESTERN BELTS.
We have obtained much order from every country in the world.
Thank you so much.

We are distinctive western belt manufacturer. We produce spots decoration belt specialized in "Americana of the Western golden age" in Japan. The product concept is "made in the heart of the west". We are very particular about the parts and machine used for a belt, and developed relationships with the company to obtain the best distinctive western belt. Since that time these company have closed and we have had to develop new relationships and this takes time and patience. We are always on the lookout for new techniques and ideas that meet and exceed our customer expectations. We strive for the same quality and workmanship being used to make the tooled spotted and jeweled belts made since the 1930's.

Our products is very nice new vintage reproduction designed in Americana of the Western golden age. Spotted and jeweled belt on top grain western bridle, embossed leather. The bridle leather of this product is a U.S. Western bridle like a vintage. The buckle is nickel, made of iron, like vintage.

BOYS! MEN! What a collection of real he-man novelty belts! you’ll be proud to wear these belts they’re so expertly made and finished. Excellent craftsmanship. In quality, they’ll match the best. In novelty, you’ll find that superb workmanship will make their unusual design even more rich and luxurious.

Original reference
America in the 1930s. I am convinced that it is largest Miller-Stockman in those days to have advertised spots decoration belt on a large scale first. Because it was written down with "a design only for Stockman-Farmer that was the newest in a market" according to Miller-Stockman catalog of 1932, the Miller-Stockman seemed to sell spots decoration belt monopolistically. Moreover, these belts are ornament belts to the last, and declare that the sturdy studded belt of H.H.HEISER and other saddlery is a position of the opposite poles.

We are really happy to be able to know you.
Respectfully,

ACE WESTERN BELTS
