48.7 gram Sterling Ranger Buckle Set Made by Navajo Artist Dan Oliver
This beautiful 4 piece sterling ranger set was made by the well known Navajo artist Dan Oliver. Dan is a resident silversmith at Shades of the West in Scottsdale, AZ. He comes by it naturally since his father Lloyd, one of the original 29 code talkers in World War II, was a silversmith for Shades of the West 40 years ago. Dan was taught by his father and uses his father’s tools. The set is designed for a ¾ inch wide belt. I personally wear this type of ranger set on a classic ranger belt where the design is based on an old gun belt or on a tapered dress belt that tapers from 1 ¼ inch to ¾ inch. I wear ranger sets with both suits and jeans. The buckle measures about 1 ½ inches by 1 3/8 inches at its widest points, is slightly domed at the top, and will accept a ¾ inch wide belt. The 2 keepers are each a bit over ¾ inch wide, measure ½ inch from front to back and have about a ½ inch high opening. The tip fits a belt end slightly under 3/4 inch wide and is 1 1/8 inches long. The back of the buckle is marked “Dan Oliver Shades of the West”. Additionally all 4 pieces are markrd sterling and “Handmade”. Total weight of the 4 pieces is 48.7 grams. This set is in excellent condition with a wonderful old patina. This set is from my personal collection of Native American items.
