Belt, Buckle, Turquoise, Hallmark, Vintage, '70's, 866
Details for days!
This large vintage buckle is the work of renowned Navajo artisan David K. Lister, who’s been on creating pieces since 1972, and is known for his use of nugget stones and applique. This particular statement-sized belt buckle is a sterling silver oval with intricate floral and leaf applique, rope detailing, and a stamp work edge -- some of the most beautiful applied work we’ve ever seen, and we’ve been doing this a while! The buckle is centered with two substantial stones of blue turquoise with black matrixing and has an outer ring of several snake eye turquoise stones, all set in serrated bezels. The strap is a vintage dark tooled leather. Truly a beautiful belt!
