Old Repousse & Stamped Navajo Sterling Silver Concho Belt. This Navajo Sterling Silver Concho Belt has 11 "Scallop" style Sterling Silver pieces and an additional 11 smaller Oval pieces. The smithing is truly magnificent and a fine example of the craft!
My guess is that it is 40-60 years old. I wish I knew who made this fine piece of art... Probably because of its age, it is Not signed by. The artist with a hallmark. My guess is that this was made in the 1970's or earlier.
It is typical to find unsigned pieces from that timeframe and prior.. I believe that I have provided you with individual close-up photographs of a few examples of the Buckle and individual Conchas. I'd love to trade with you today. I will pack this carefully for you so that the conchos do not rub up against each other in transit and it will get to you in the same condition that you see in the pictures. I thank You and look forward to sharing a good experience!Recommended Reference Books - This artist is referenced if there is a page # shown below.
