Chanel Black Patent Gripoix Belt
A Chanel Black Patent Gripoix Belt. In 1869, Augustine Gripoix, a Paris glass worker skilled in the making of reproduction pearls, developed a sophisticated technique for setting and enamelling coloured, cast glass in intricate metal mountings. “Pâte de verre,” or glass paste, is formed when molten glass is poured into a mold, rather than through the kiln-firing of a paste of ground glass and binding agents. This fabulous black patent Chanel belt features the traditional Chanel Gripoix colours of red and green, giving the belt a classic feel with a modern twist.
Condition: This belt is in excellent condition. There is a bubble to the patent leather where the belt has been stored folded. This is not noticeable when being worn.
