Description
 

Stamped U S Navajo 2, which appeared on the undersides of hand wrought or cast jewelry made between 1938 and 1942. The stamp was used on all Navajo jewelry sold from the C.G. Wallace's Sanders and Cedar Point posts in Arizona.

Also having a C.G. Wallace traders code and Eskiesose's X hallmark this outstanding concho belt presents the best work from an era long past! Having Eskiesose's hallmark is quite rare, as there were only a few silversmith that hallmarked their jewelry on select pieces during this time period.

Eskiesose was best known for his stamp making abilities. Both he and Hosteen Goodluck were commissioned to make stamps for trader C.G. Wallace. He was one of only a few master jewelers and active from the 1910's to 1940's. This beautifully crafted concho belt offers first phase hand wrought crafting of ingot silver. Hand drawn silver, each concho has beautiful (stamped) repousse and detailed stamp work. The design is set with beautiful Natural turquoise stones. The back of each concho has a single copper bar weaved through a contoured, soft black leather belt measuring 2" wide. Each of the 7 concho's measure 2 1/2" long by 2" wide, with the ties measuring 2" by 1". The beautiful buckle measuring 2 3/4" by 2 1/4". The silver has a lovely patina from age, having been stored carefully in a private collection for many years. The entire belt measures 36 1/4" long.
