See the Vintage Gallery for details on these fine belts.
A classically beautiful concha belt. The hallmark on the reverse is AM which is a hallmark attributed to Angeline Miller (Navajo) but honestly, it could be another Navajo smith as this work is not typical of what little I have seen of her work. The buckle and each of the conchas measure 2.75 by 2 1/8 inches. $1275. (TUCSON)
A very contemporary concha belt by long-time Navajo silversmith Frances Jones. The buckle measures 1.5 by 1 3/8 inches and each of the 16 conchas is 1 by 1.5 inches. And for the bars on the back she used sterling silver, not the usual copper. $1450. (TUCSON)
