Vintage Sterling Silver
Concho Belt with Sand Cast Buckle

Paula says - "The vintage sterling silver conchos and butterflies are in excellent condition with an even dark patina. The sand cast sterling silver buckle also has a nice patina. It has four blue turquoise stones with dark brown matrix that are set in smooth bezels..
"The 34-inch leather belt is solid and intact but has surface cracking as seen in the photo at the bottom. You have the option of buying a new 48-inch leather belt that you can put the conchos on or that we can put the conchos on before we send it. You will need to punch holes in the new leather.

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.
