Signed Southwestern Sterling Silver Chip Inlay Belt Buckle
This vintage southwestern sterling silver belt buckle features pierced overlay construction of a landing eagle with chip inlay of turquoise and coral.
The border is decorated with traditional Native American stamp work.
Signed on the reverse with a capital B and sterling. There are a number of Native American silversmiths that use just a B hallmark but I did find an online reference at art ameridien with a mark that looks very similar to this hallmark that is attributed to Billie Slim.
Measurements: 2 1/2 by 1 3/4 inches to fit a belt up to 1 5/16 inches wide.
Weight: 24.7 grams.
