47 G Sterling Silver 4 Piece Ranger Buckle Set Fits 1 Inch Belt By Ben Becenti For Sale
This beautiful 4 piece sterling ranger
set was made by a very talented artist, the well known Navajo artist Benjamin
Becenti. The way this piece is signed is
identical to how I've seen Benjamin's hallmark on pieces that are known to be
by him but the work is a bit different than Benjamin's normal style.
The buckle measures about 2 ¼ inches by
2 inches at its widest points, is
slightly domed at the top, and will accept a 1 inch wide belt. The 2 keepers are each a bit over 1 inch
wide, measure over 5/8 inch from front to back and have about a ½ inch high
opening. The tip fits a belt end
slightly under 1 inch and is almost 1 ¼ inches long; the tip is less wide than
the bucklre since the tip of the belt is normally trimed a bit so the sides of
the tip are flush with the sides of the belt when it's put onto the belt. The back of the buckle is marked “sterling”
and "BB". Total weight of the
4 pieces is 46.9 grams.
This set is made in the style of the
classic “Ranger Belt” named after the gun belts worn by the Texas Rangers and
the Arizona Rangers. Although the wide
gun belt actually was buckled with a thinner ¾ inch belt this ranger set will
accept a 1 inch wide belt making it perfect to put onto a dress belt to wear to
the office or with a pair of jeans.
The buckle has a stylized stirrup shape and
is decorated with stamping similar to the rays of the sun. The entire set is expertly made to the
highest standards. The pictures include
an example of how this set looks on a belt and the pictures are part of the
description of this set. The belt is not
included in this sale.
The ranger set is in excellant
condition. It's is from my personal collection of Native American items.
to check the pictures as they are part of the description and please ask any questions you
have prior to offerding.
