Description
 

C.G. Wallace, earliest etched code appears on the underside of the hand wrought buckle. This wonderful belt was made between 1928 and 1940. This stunning belt is definitely crafted by one of a few historic master smiths that were associated with C. G. Wallace, such as Ettsity Tsosie, Ambrose Roanhorse, Hosteen Goodluck and Austin Wilson.

This outstanding concho belt presents the best work from an era long past! It is covered in fine detailed stamping, perfectly placed repoussť and is set with small round turquoise stones in heavy smooth bezels. Heavier silver was used to create this wonderful belt. The detail is amazing when looking closely at the work. Even the tiny raindrops between each stone are fluted. There is great age on this belt, with a deep patina on the silver and beautifully aged color change of the turquoise stones.

Both Ettsity Tsosie and Hosteen Goodluck were commissioned to make stamps for trader C.G. Wallace during this era. This beautifully crafted concho belt offers second phase hand wrought crafting of silver.

The back of each concho has a single copper bar, with a soft dark brown leather belt measuring 3/4" wide. Each of the 8 concho's measure 2" long by 1 5/8" wide, with the ties measuring 1 1/2" by 1". The beautiful buckle measuring 2 1/4" by 2". The entire belt measures 35 1/4" long.
