Rare 1970s Char Hand painted Corset Belt

In all my years of collecting I have never seen a Char belt before. Coats, vests, pants, dresses, capes and even bags but never a belt! Never mind a corseted tie belt that is hand painted on butter soft deer hide mixed with patches of hand dyed snake skin. The edges are whip-stitched with a dyed pale green rawhide on the edges and a bighter green rawhide to fix the snake skin in place. Then they geniusly used a red version of the ties for the corseted front. It's just a jewel of a piece and in wonderful condition!
