The famous Cleo de Merode circa 1900 Original Belt Buckles framed behind glass in a carved gold wood frame. You will notice this name appears behind the gold frame written on paper along with information attached as well and if  you notice also, the tape is very old.  Upon looking up her history which is much about her entire life I will briefly explain in my own words some of the information and if you care to you may read much more about her on your own research.   Cléo de Mérode was French and she was popular due to her dancing in addition to her beauty. It is said also that many post cards and other paper work was made having her photo placed upon them due to this beauty of hers.

  Cleo became very popular in Paris, France because she was so unique in her own way and her own style. Cleo, in addition to her famous reputation all over France was noticed by one of the famous sculptures who sculptured... her and to this day still remains in one of the famous museums in France.  She was also painted in numerous portraits by other famous painters as well.    She has so many paintings and photos done by famous professionals and was heard among everyone.  While she danced at one of the famous Paris places she was seen one evening by Belgian King Leopold which was so attracted to her that it was said she was his mistress, however this was merely by word of mouth.

 She danced her way throughout the years all over France and also came here to the States as well to perform. She also lived a long life up to her ninety's.  If you look up more information you will see how beautiful she is and how everyone stared at her no matter where she walked.  She is indeed gorgeous with such a skinny waist !!!
