This beautifully handcrafted Native American belt buckle can accommodate a belt small to medium size, and features four black matrix turquoise nuggets graduated in size, as well as an oxblood red coral marquise shaped nugget with a couple of natural marks.
The belt buckle is decorated with sterling feathers, rope braid, silver curls, and dots. The border is marked with a scalloped pattern. We have found other artwork in the same style, with the initials CJT, identified as Navajo, and we believe this artwork to be Navajo as well.
Tested positive to be sterling silver.
Weighs 53.5 grams.
Belt buckle is about 3” long by 2” wide, and can accommodate a belt up to about 1 ½” wide.

Overall very good vintage condition.
