So awesome it had to be instagramed. Yes, I have made that a verb.
It's a brass dog belt buckle!
So many questions with this one. Why is it in the basement? Who would have worn this? Why would someone make this dog ..eh... *this* anatomically correct?
The back, sadly not instagramed.
It was made around 1978 so it must have made it's way into basement land sometime after that.
Therefore, dear Baron Buckle, I hope you enjoy your new home in the light of day. I'm sure things have changed quite a bit from the disco scene of the 1970's.
Note: Lots more house artifacts soon to be posted as I am in the process of buying a metal detector, woohoo!
