This set has been in my family for 60 years and the leather is still supple. Leather belt measures 4.5 foot with belt buckle. The bells are decorated petal and numbered. Starts at bottom with 1 then 5-6-7-8-9-10-9-8-7-6-5.They could be polished but I prefer the antique patina. There in only one section where the leather is stiff around the top #6 bell. The rest is very supple. This is the original leather. One bell has a small hole probably in the making last picture is of the stiff dryer leather It is over 100 years old But Good Condition.
