Albino Bison Buckle - Very special Gold Lipped Mussel carving
RONNIE & RAMIL GLODOVE, Zuni (I think). Their carvings and creations are remarkable. This is a relative bargain for their work. 4.5" top to bottom and 3.25" across. That is a lot of sterling silver.
Carved from a Gold Lipped Mussel shell .. the coloration is natural. I am guessing that the horn is actually bison horn ... don't think it is stone; the eyes probably bead or shell. This is one heck of a belt buckle!
