Navajo concho belt

With elaborate stamping, repousse',and chiseling, this Navajo concho belt has five conchas (2 13/16" d x 2 1/2" h), 6 "butterflies (2 5/8" w x 1 1/2" h) , and a large buckle (3" w x 2 5/" h). It is unsigned and made out of heavy guage sheet silver and high quality turquoise. There are 3 stones that have cracks but all are stable. The silverwork is gorgeous. The leather of the belt was replaced at some time in its past.


This is an iconic Navajo concho belt. With quality work and stones (possibly Lone Mountain), it is a great buy at this price. It is coming out of a New York private collection.
