This heavy sterling silver belt buckle is a one-of-a-kind work of art by Navajo silversmith Patrick Taylor.
The deceased silver artist was from Chimney Butte, Arizona on the Navajo reservation. He came from a creative family. His mother, Roselyn Taylor was a weaver and his sister, Rita Begay, is a jeweler. He learned designs from his grandfather, Frank Taylor, and his father, Dennis Taylor.
The buckle is hand crafted sterling that's stamped with repousse work in a geometric design. The center is set with a fantastic piece of fine genuine turquoise in a triangular shape, set in a decorative cut bezel.
Buckle measures 3 inches across by 2 1/8 inches high. It weighs 108.6 grams. It's quite substantial. The back bar that holds the belt is 1 1/2 inches wide.
Back is hand etched P. TAYLOR. Although his jewelry was mostly traditional, Patrick also did contemporary designs.
Patrick (Pat) Taylor is listed in the book HALLMARKS OF THE SOUTHWEST by Barton Wright (page 164).
We've left the silver patina as found, unpolished. Minimal age-related wear. Excellent vintage condition.
