    Traditional Straits Chinese women's belt worn to secure a sarong. I'm not sure if it's Singaporean or Malaccan etc.

    It can be worn over a dress or with jeans, stored in a drawer or melted :eek:, is adjustable with an intricate series of stars set in interlocking links with hooks at both ends to secure the item around the waist. The buckle features a dragon with carp.

    Specifications:

    Overall length = 94cm
    Total weight = 158g
    XRF = 97.22 fine silver
    ASW = 153.6g (4.94 oz)

    Asking spot + postage of choice. I can also do FSF next week Wed (3/4) - Fri (5/4) on the Sunshine Coast.

    Please quote spot at time of buzz.

    Edit to add: because of the double clasp setup for security, the max waist size it would fit would be 89cm, which counts me out as I'm about 101cm. :eek::D
