oldring

Conchabuckle
Hopibuckle

A classic concha style buckle from the 1930s or 40s. 2.5 by 3 inches and made for a 1 1/4 inch belt. $400.

A very early Hopi overlay buckle, with corn motifs. The hallmark on the back is, in my opinion, that of Everett Harris, Tobacco Clan from Musangnovi. It was purchased in 1952. Very rare to find his work.
