Men's Belt Buckle


#1

Can anybody tell me about this piece. It looks Navajo but uses Hopi Kachinas as decor. I do not see a signature and the short marks (see picture) are unreadable, could be a silver mark or just scratches. It is 4" long & 3.25" wide. Thank you C.T.

You have a very nice piece. Those are Navajo Yei bi Chei dancers. The buckle does not appear to be stamped, but an artist by the name Helen Long was famous for this style of work. Also, the stone in the center is a very nice piece of Bisbee Turquoise, you have a winner.
