Brutalist Copper Turquoise Western Belt Buckle and Bolo Tie, Circa 1960


Wear your western wear in style with this fabulous solid copper set from Bell Trading Company, specialists in Native American Indian jewelry from 1935 until 1972. The brutalist design offers an interesting combination of texture and reflection which displays the rich copper color to maximum effect. The brilliant blue and green turquoise embellishment finishes the look beautifully. The 4" x 2.75" buckle is designed for a 1.5" wide belt and offers a hook closure. The trapezoidal 1.5" x 2" bolo is adjustable at the back. The 35.5" long braided black leather tie looks good though it is not original to the piece and the metal tips are more of a gold tone rather than copper. Both the buckle and bolo are in very good condition with some patina to the copper especially around the turquoise embellishments which appears to be by design. Belt is not included but add your own natural leather strip or consider pairing it with a dark green suede for a completely different look.
