The leather is moroccan leather on the outside and plain leather used on the inside. All the straps are attached to rings that are sewn down on the backside of the leather belt. A large brass plate in the oval is 4 inches long x 2 3/4 inches has two brass loops that protrude through the leather and are held in place by a leather thong.

The maroon leather has darkened in color from age and use, but supple and in very good condition. The width of the belt is approximately 2 1/2 inches.
