This terrific old Navajo buckle, based on a concho belt design, features repousse elements, outstanding chisel work, hand stamping and two, sky blue natural turquoise cabs. The chisel work around the repousse sections vary from element to element and the chiseled rays vary in position and depth speaking to the handcrafted nature of this outstanding buckle. The turquoise cabochons are perfectly matched and set in serrated bezel. The buckle measures 3.5” by 3” and weighs 61 grams. The unusual hallmark is either “EB” or “BE” with the letters being individually applied and flopped, and the sterling mark is in block type placing this buckle somewhere in the 1950s. This is a beautiful Navajo creation, by an unknown artisan that would fit into any collection, and it’s sturdy nature could see it being used as an every day buckle.
