Rare Old Hopi Morris Robinson Concho Belt of Silver With Turquoise
Here's a rare, vintage silver link concho belt by old Hopi master jeweler Morris Robinson. Each of the 9 conchos in the belt shows outstanding stamp work and is set with a single natural turquoise stone cut into a circular shape. Finely stamped silver spacers compliment each oval scalloped concho. For some eye-catching contrast, the buckle is all-silver with a little repousse circle where the turquoise sits in the other conchos.
Unlike many concho belts, this wonderful piece is so easy to wear. It's not too heavy, and it looks fantastic with a wide array of different looks. The conchos are a perfect size at 1 3/4" - certainly noticeable but not overdone.
This perfect piece is hallmarked with Morris Robinson's snake and H.
It's THE Morris Robinson piece from the private, personal collection of Native art dealer, collector and scholar Martha Hopkins Struever.
