Native American Bench Stamped Sterling Silver Marked Classic Navajo Leather Concho Belt
This belt represents the epitome of Navajo stamping and repousse work. This delicately stamped belt has the finest and most precise tooling of any early belt that I have seen. This exceptional belt features a rectangular buckle that measures 2-3/8" long and 2" across.. and has 16 hand bench stamped oval conchos that measure 1-1/4" by 1-1/8" and weigh 7.4 gms each. The conchos are attached to a black genuine leather belt by a copper bar soldered to the back of each concho, which was typical of Native American concho belts. This allows the concho to be moveable. The overall weight of the whole Concho belt is 193 grams, or about 6.8 oz. The belt strap is 3/4" wide and 40" long. This belt can be worn slung low on the hips, or, you can slip a concho or two off to wear at the waist. If you've never worn a Concho belt before, you're going to be amazed at how wearable, versatile, comfortable and stunning they are. This is a medium weight belt, perfect to wear any day or evening by a man or a woman. It is fully signed by the maker...marked and tested for Sterling Silver. The silver has its natural heavy patina and of course can be polished if one wishes. Condition is vintage Excellent.
