This late twentieth-century belt features twelve two-inch conchas set on a brown leather belt with a stamped, repoussé buckle. Each concha features a stamped traditional diamond-shaped center with stamped, radiating petals. The conchas are of a lighter gauge silver and smaller than those found on traditional belts. The rectangular buckle features elaborately-stamped and repoussé designs. The smaller size and lighter weight make for a very comfortable fit. The belt is unsigned.


Condition:  this Concho Belt with Smaller Stamped Conchas is in very good condition. All of the pieces are secure. The leather belt is in good condition.

Provenance: The belt is from a Southwest Indian Jewelry collector in Colorado

Recommended Reading: Indian Jewelry of the American Southwest by Sarah Peabody and William Turnbaugh
