Big SHOSHONE Native American Beaded Belt Buckle

This extraordinary belt buckle was handmade by a member of the Shoshone Bannock Tribe of Blackfoot Idaho.

Circa 1950s/60s, the buckle is a beautiful work of art and the medium is hundreds of tiny seed beads. The design is traditional Native American geometric in tribal colors...turquoise, coral, white and black. The core of the buckle is made of stainless steel.

This is a big buckle...measures 3 by 4 inches. It's truly a piece of jewelry to turn an ordinary belt into wearable art. The back is lined in genuine suede hide. There's an old tag on the back that identifies this as 'Shoshoni' (sic).

Condition is excellent. This was a souvenir that was never used.

The Shoshone-Bannock Tribes are considered to be the producers of the world's finest hand-crafted bead work. The tribe's work is on display at the Smithsonian.
