A great older buckle made by a Zuni husband and wife, Helen and Lincoln Zunie. The impressive horse is made with jet, natural turquoise and I think marble, set in heavy silver. The artists added dimensionality to the eye and texture to the surface with silver wire twists. In very good used condition, the buckle measures 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ would take a 1 1/4″ belt.
