Gorgeous vintage Native American Navajo style sterling silver Concho belt, hand stamped and made almost identical to the style made by Frank Patania of the Old Frank Patania Thunderbird shop circa pre-early 1930s. This so closely resembles a Concho belt from Frank Patania that Im shocked there isnt his hallmark Thunderbird stamp (Although that was very common of that time period because Patania did not believe that hallmarking was very important in the beginning when he made his most earliest work). Please enter link to view the belt that this one compares to and is referenced. Regardless, this is a fabulous set consisting of (10) 6.5cm x 5cm concha’s plus a main buckle that is 7.5cm x 5cm. All have original, stamped, filed, chisel-cut and repousseed designs that are completely traditional. Aside from the main buckle, each concha has two 3.5cm copper loops on the back for a 1 inch belt to slide through. The wear is age appropriate and gives this belt fantastic patina. The leather belt in the pictures is 38 inches long, 1 inch wide and is very old. The total weight is approx 21.90+g each (10)+32.92g=251.92grams 8.89 oz. All measurements and weight are approximate.
