About The Joshua Tree Overlay Silver Buckle

Impressive solid belt buckle, with a look at once modern, yet reminiscent of Aztec designs 900 to 1200 years old. This creation is bold and looks like a joshua tree. The silhouette is created in overlay on a sturdy back plate that is oxide blackened to further enhance the design. The work is superbly clean. Though originally intended as a gentleman's buckle, this piece will fit, just as well into a woman's wardrobe. One can never have too many fine buckles !!!

For your convenience we would be happy to supply a belt of your choice in the appropriate size and if you wish, antiqued to suit your buckle from $200 - $250.
