Purchased from a private collection
and now available for purchase
this rectangular pawn Hopi Belt Buckle.
This buckle features a Duck Motif using
Hopi overlay as a design process.
What makes this piece unusual is that
in this piece, you can see that the cut out
of the duck is in the silver
by removing the silver rather than adding
silver as most Hopi work incorporates in the
making of the Duck.
This attractive belt buckle would make a
lovely gift for someone special.
Both dressy and sporty, this belt buckle could
be worn for every occasion.
This measures 1 1/2"H x 2"W.
Keeper measures 1 1/4"W.
Weighs 27.5 grams.
This is a rare find as rarely
do we see old Hopi Jewelry,& then
especially in belt buckles.
Thanks for looking!
