A leather belt, wide, decorated with metal elements and large oval semi-precious stones (probably agates), arranged in three rows. The belt is fastened with three metal hooks. Wide, richly decorated belts fastened with many buckles were characteristic of the entire area of the Carpathian mountains and the Balkans. Such richly decorated items were worn on festive days, while more modest ones were used daily. The wide belts in different regions bore different names. They were used not only to decorate and keep trousers in place. Sometimes – like in case of Podhale belts – they were also for storing money and small items. The object was used as a prop in the School of Fine Arts in Kraków.
