DESCRIPTION: This is a VERY well made belt…. I’m not sure who taught John to make belts but. Everything about this belt is spot on excellent craftsmanship…. Proper concho belts have leather. To the conchos and bow ties, John used thick black leather backings and strap to construct. The Sterling Silver work is equally as nice, VERY refined stampwork and. This belt has a classic yet understated design that will remain in style and. Is made to last for years to come.. One of the most wonderful aspects of this belt is its a VERY wearable size, if it fits your waist you can. Slide this belt thru most any belt loop….. John used applied diamond shape overlays on each piece of this. Belt giving the silver a nice 3 dimensional effect to the belt…. The belt consist of nine 1 1/4 x 1. Stamped crescent borders, interior stamp ovals w/ beautifully punctuated. Flowers petal centers with. That’s a lot of stamp work in a concho of this size… There are ten Bow-ties measuring about 3/4 x. 1 1/8 which are as complex as. About 2″ x 2 5/8″ is a classic Concho Belt shape and is adorned. Stampwork along four applied diamonds. Representing the four corners of the earth…. All 20 pieces of silver have a WONDERFUL patina…… The belt has holes at 30″ thru 33″ at 3/4 increments… The belt is 42 long so there is plenty of room. To add holes and make it fit for your waist size…. I believe this belt was made. Between 1960 and 1980, it appears to have been worn very little… This belt is a real piece of Southwestern history and is. A MUST for any. Given its age, this belt has been well taken care of and is in overall. One to pass up….. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!
