This delightful pewter belt buckle featuring a Dalmatian, the proverbial “Fireman’s Best Friend,” was manufactured in the 1970s and has a serial number of #2318. The maker of the buckle has not been identified.
On the belt buckle, the details of the Dalmatian, its helmet, and the wording are raised in a relief-style design and painted with heavy enamel foreground colors of red, white and black. This belt buckle will accommodate belts no larger than 1.5” wide. It is in good vintage condition and appears to have never been used.
This wonderful belt buckle would make a great gift for any collector of firefighter paraphernalia, or it would serve as an unusual addition to any buckle collection.
