Please be aware Black Cat Clothiers is operating out of Philadelphia, PA which is currently impacted by COVID-19. Due to this, I will be shipping less frequently to minimize my exposure at the post office. All orders will be sent instructions for how to safely handle your package when it arrives, as COVID-19 may live on cardboard for up to 24 hours. Current processing time is 2-5 business days. Be safe and thank you for understanding.
Absolutely astounding late 1910s silver-tone nurse's belt featuring a gorgeous Art Nouveau design. I absolutely love these belts and am so excited to have one! These nurse's belts represent a sacred piece of women's independence, particularly at a time when pockets or bags were considered "un-ladylike" -- items like scissors, keys, sewing kits and more could be clipped onto these belts, allowing women more freedom and ability to address their day-to-day needs. Pair with billowing tunics or skintight jumpsuits, and of course, if you're lucky enough to own a chatelaine, don't forget to clip that beauty on. Hook closure at front buckle.
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with item lying flat) →length: 28 inches →height of front buckle: just under 2 inches →height of links: 1.5 inches
ESTIMATED SIZE: X-Small to Medium; the fit of this garment depends mostly on where you'd like it to sit. At 28 inches in total length, this should work for someone with a 27-inch waist for wear at the natural waist, but smaller sizes may also wear this beautifully more toward the hip. Please keep in mind there is no give or stretch!
CONDITION: Very good antique condition. There's some light wear and minor tarnishing throughout, as well as some mild surface scuffing. Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.
MORE INFORMATION: Hallmarked EPNS for electro-plated nickel silver.
PLEASE NOTE: Black Cat Clothiers only accepts returns if a mistake was made in describing the garment, for which we ask you to contact us within 3 days of receiving the garment. Please compare the detailed measurements noted above to one of your garments (not your body measurements; clothing should allow room for movement) that fits you well. Please be aware all monitors display colors differently. Additionally, all of our clothing is pre-owned and vintage/antique, which means each piece may feature minor signs of wear, as noted in the description. To learn more, please view our store policies.
SHIPPING: All orders are processed and shipped within 1-3 business days, unless otherwise noted. Shipping rates are calculated by USPS at checkout and are dependent on the weight of the item(s) you've purchased in addition to packaging.
