Native American, Navajo Signed A.Vanderver Inlay Gold-filled over Sterling Silver Turquoise Coral MOP Concho Belt
This concho belt is exceptional, to say the least...It measures 38" long!! with 10 conchos measuring 1-3/8" by 1-3/4" (not including the bales on each end) , then the 11 'butterflys' or spacers between them 3/4" wide by 1-3/8" long.The buckle is signed by the artist and it measures 2" by 1-3/4". It is also marked 1/20th 12kt GF. The detailed workmanship is absolutely incredible and this is the most outstanding piece I have had in my years of collecting. The work alone is mind boggling,inlay to match in all of these pieces, mother-of-pearl, coral, turquoise, onyx. Then the nugget work, again, all matching.You have to see this awesome piece of work to appreciate the workmanship, if anyone knows anything about the artist, I'm all ears. I DO know that it was purchased in Scottsdale, Arizona in the early 1980's and the price was staggering! I have just spent over an hour (with the loop) going over each and every concho.. I found no chips, fractures, cracks. AMAZING!! condition.
