Early Yazzie Johnson Buckle of Brass Set With Red Jasper

Vintage Brass Buckle Set With Red Jasper by Yazzie Johnson


This rare, notable buckle by Navajo great Yazzie Johnson dates circa 1978 and is in a style characteristic of his early work. So stylistically important is the buckle, in fact, that it is featured in the book Shared Images: The Innovative Jewelry of Yazzie Johnson and Gail Bird.

The piece comes from the private collection of Native American art dealer, Martha Struever, who was also a close friend of Yazzie Johnson and Gail Bird.

It measures 3" and fits a 1 1/2" belt. The piece has an etched signature "Yazzie Johnson" on the reverse.
