A clasp from the past.
When I was a wee schoolboy, almost every boy I knew held-up his trousers with a belt such as the one above.
I never thought anything about them at the time, but looking back I now see them as rather exotic.
That simple Snake clasp is perfect; I wonder if it wasn't based on some Roman design? It looks as if it should be.
I can see them making a come-back. Surely today's Hipsters will soon recognise their appeal.
