Rolin Belt set 1430-1500 (Code: EBS-14)


Belt width 30-38 mm Buckle size: 36 x 58 mm, width of place for strap 30 mm Ending size: 38 x 40 mm

The set is based on the portrait of Nicolas Rolin attributed to Roger Van der Weyden. It was probably painted in 1434. We tried to make it as close to the original. The buckle is made in the shape of cittern . That for was very popular in 14-15th century.

Its perimeter is decorated with the raw of oval dots. The strap end has a shape of crescent with the raw of dots in the center. on the center there is a ring/ It can be used for the chain. With the help of that chain it is possible to fasten the belt. As we can see on the Portrait of Rolin. As we know Nicolas Rolin was chancellor the Burgundy Dukes for forty years.

So such type of fastening of the belt could be very fashionable during 15th century.

Beautiful set, but it has a downside: the eyelets for sewing the strap end to your belt, are too close to the edge of the belt. For me, this resulted in the leather breaking due to the 'pull' when wearing the belt. As the belt is velvet covered, it will be a nasty job to try to fix it... :(
