Paula says - "This vintage belt buckle bears the hallmark JLW but I am uncertain of the maker. I would estimate it was made in the 1950s-1960s.

In my opinion, the buckle shows design characteristics and workmanship of being Navajo made. But because we cannot attribute the JLW mark to a specific artist we can't legally sell it as Native American made - read more."

Vintage stamped sterling silver and Turquoise Shadowbox belt buckle

SHADOWBOX is an overlay design technique where there is space between the top and bottom layers of sterling silver creating a 3-dimensional shadow effect. The bottom layer is often darkened to enhance the shadowbox effect.

Why isn't this item called Native American?

The US Department of the Interior Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990 and its recent Amendments require that items described as Native American or Indian be made by an enrolled member of a federally recognized tribe. Furthermore, government regulations suggest that all attributions include the Native American Indian's name, tribe and federal tribal enrollment number. Because it is impossible to identify the artist for many vintage items, even if they are authentic Indian made items, we cannot and will not use the words Native American or Indian in association with such pieces.
