Berlin belt buckle – Berlin Gürtel & Platz der Luftbrücke monument:
Just in front of the Berlin Tempelhof Airport there is the Platz der Luftbrücke with its monument. When we walked by to the Bread and Butter fair, I realized that the patina of the Berlin Feinschmuck Gürtel/belt goes quite well with it.
Münchner 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.
The guys from Tanner Goods Portland did it right. A one for a lifetime, no schnick schnack belt. A belt made with the thick veg. tanned leather, solid brass hardware and crafted with passion and knowledge.
Coca Cola belt buckles and rings by Feinschmuck:
A while ago Feinschmuck did these samples for Coca Cola. The confirmation for a licence to produce these belts and rings hasn´t been given yet. So not for sale, but nice to look at anyway and a great design and craftsmanship.
