Joe H. Quintana Silver Concho Belt With Turquoise Buckle
This fantastic handmade silver concho belt should appeal to all your secret rock star fantasies. The vintage concho belt is made by none other than Joe H. Quintana. You know, just THE incredible Cochiti Pueblo jeweler, who made Jim Morrison's iconic one.
Just like Jim Morrison, this belt has loads of charisma, style, sex-appeal and charm. It's totally rare, truly collectible and hoping that you just might pull out some leather pants to wear with it.
Quintana's exceptional silversmithing, which he learned during WWII as a ship yard welder and honed under the tutelage of Frank Patania, is evidenced in the belt's precision stampwork. It has 10 beautifully stamped silver conchos that measure 2 3/4" x 2 1/4" each.he repousse buckle is set with a single turquoise stone. It measures 3" x 2 1/2" while the original leather belt strap fits a 32" - 39" waist.
Signed on the back by Joseph Herrera Quintana, considered one of the true master jewelers of the 20th century.
