This Large and intricate Belt Buckle was made by Eugene Charley, a talented Navajo artist. It is old-style, but perhaps it was made in the last 20 years and made to look old with an antiqued finish patina. It is stamp signed with a hallmark depicting the maker. It is also stamped "Sterling" on reverse of the buckle. It is guaranteed to be Sterling Silver.
There is heavy tarnish to make it look many decades old. The deep stamp and delicate stampwork is impressive!It is worth examining in the magnified pictures. I believe it will please you.. As the Navajo say, "Walk in Beauty". I thank You and look forward to sharing a good experience! "AMERICAN INDIAN JEWELRY I" - Gregory Schaaf.
