Here some preview images from some solid bronze items by Feinschmuck. Each single piece is unique by the traditional wax cast process. Skillful patinated and by so already unique in its look. Use the hooks to safely attach your wallet, keys or knife with a leash or chain to your jean. Right now they are available with cherry blossoms and surfaces from ray and ostrich.

Ha! I totally forgot to mention the Indian Head belt buckle which will also be available soon after the Bread & Butter fair January 2014 in Feinschmuck supplied shops.

munich coat of arms belt – Münchner Stadtwappen Gürtel

Münchner Stadtwappen Gürtel - city arms munich belt1 Münchner Stadtwappen Gürtel - city arms munich belt münchner kindl Münchner Stadtwappen Gürtel - city arms munich belt münchner kindlMünchner Wappen Gürtel – Munich coat of  arms belt – Münchner Kindl:
Yesterday Manfred from Feinschmuck gave me this belt buckle made after a 13th. century coat of arms (Stadtwappen / Stadtsiegel) from the city of Munich. 

Can someone make out the full text on the buckle and figure out the meaning?

Below something from Wikipedia the full story here: Münchner Kindl.

The coat of arms of Munich (Münchner Wappen) depicts a young monk dressed in black holding a red book. It has existed in a similar form since the 13th century, though at certain points in its history it has not depicted the central figure of the monk at all. As the German name for Munich, i.e. München, means of Monks, the monk in this case is a self-explanatory symbol who represents the city of Munich. Appearing on a document of May 28, 1239, the oldest seal of Munich has a picture of a monk wearing an open hood. While all seal impressions show the monk with the book in one hand and three outstretched fingers in the other, the monk has varied slightly, appearing in profile, then later full-faced and bare-headed. By the 19th century the figure was portrayed as youthful and became known as the Münchner Kindl or Munich Child. The coat of arms in its current form was created in 1957 and is still an important symbol of the Bavarian state capital.

Feinschmuck Lindauer Belt – used

Feinschmuck Lindauer Belt - Gürtel aged mine vs mariasFeinschmuck Lindauer Belt – used, mine vs. Maria´s:
Today I saw Maria´s Feinschmuck Lindauer belt and somehow her leather showed a lot more wear and a nicer color. Can it be that she has worn it more often?

The angle of the camera might cheat a bit. The lower belt is 3 cm while the upper one is 4 cm (the leather). The upper buckle 0,5 cm wider (4,5 cm) but 0,1 cm (8,2 cm) shorter.

I’ve been hunting for a used Ruitertassen briefcase for a long time. I guess it was because my mother bought me a similar bag for school. As a teenager I painted it badly and it was disposed sometime.  New ones are about 200 Euros, decent ones on Ebay go for about 70 Euros max. The “big” ones are good for carrying close to 20 kg of books. The one I got has probably just about 1/3 of the with of the schoolbags. The shoulderstrap was missing but I wouldn’t have a use for it anyway. The craftsmanship of this bag is extraordinary, very thick leather and strong stitching. And it developed  a wonderful patina over the years. It will serve as a notebook case eventually with no intention to vandalize it with graffiti.
