This Navajo Sterling Silver Concho Belt has a wonderful soft "tone" that was created by the artist by using an oxidation technique to highlight the deep Repousee of each of each Concha and the Buckle. I trade a lot of jewelry made by the family and Thunderbird Shop of Frank Patania.
It sure looks like the artist that made this was influenced by the designs of Frank Patania in creating a belt set in what is called "Thunderbird Style". I love to find Concho Belts and to trade them.It is a pleasure to offer this Old Sterling Silver Concho Belt for sale to you. It is quite dramatic in the real and accented depth and thickness of each heavily worked Sterling piece.
While it is heavy at over 10 troy ounces, it looks like is weighs twice that... The Repousse domes are each highlighted and surrounded by twisted Sterling Silver "Rope Work" and the circumference of each Concha makes each one of them almost jump off of the platform of the leather strap. It has lots of tarnish, especially on the backsides. The Concho Belt is Not stamped "Sterling", but it is guaranteed to be Sterling Silver.
These conchas are thick, heavy, and very well worked. Please, take a good look at the pictures and magnified photographs to see if it is the one for you. If so, I'd love to trade with you today! I will pack this carefully for you so that the conchas do not rub up against each other in transit and it will get to you in the same condition that you see in the pictures. I thank You and look forward to sharing a good experience!
