BELT: total length 29 1/2" x 1 7/8" wide
SILVER MEDALLIONS: round: 2 1/2" diameter; rectangular: 2 1/2" x 1 1/2"
This belt was purchased from an estate whose owner traveled extensively in the 1950's - 1970's, during which time she purchased a number of Navajo pieces.
The 11 medallions on the belt are of sand cast silver (tested and guaranteed) centered with round cabochons of turquoise colored glass. (Might be actual turquoise, but I don't think so.) ****Note that the slide bands holding the medallions to the belt are of copper.
The pig skin leather is supple, undamaged and without repairs.
This belt is a real "show stopper" - very wearable for years to come.
