vetraio50
(437 items)

This belt buckle was found at the Salvos about fifteen years ago and gives a little away about my past. I used to wear it out in the evenings when I was still hitting the bars up the road. These days it’s slightly tarnished. Life mellows one out. Not that it is overly fancy for a belt buckle but it shined up well.

I’m sure it’s solid silver but it’s not marked. In Australia everything has silver marks except colonial silver; so I’d always supposed it was ‘foreign’.
I need some help with this one. Perhaps it’s Mexican? Perhaps someone on Collector’s Weekly can help me here?

It’s 7.5 cm or 3” across.
The decoration is hand chased across the face of the six-pointed star.

  4. AmberRose AmberRose, 2 years ago
    Hey V, the more I think about this, it reminds me of what Mexican gauchos wear as decoration???? Perhaps something like that???

    Hmmm, maybe not. It is in my brain somewhere...

    Why Navajo?
  8. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    Believe me Bellin, it's not plated. It's silver! I can smell silver plate! I'm allergic to nickel and I always smell silver items - the smell of the alloy is quite distinct.

    That was Douglas Fairbanks with too much slap wasn't it? Looked like me after a hard nite of party in the nineties! Mind you, I was an avid viewer of the Cisco Kid in the fifties! Duncan Renaldo was king! We never saw it in colour!

    I don't remember the 90s ;))

    Many thanks mikie and Amy too! Purpledog and inky earlier too!

    Many thanks scandinAmy and Collectiblesunlimited too!

    This has been bugging me as I know I have seen it before...concho belt link!!!
  14. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    So now I'm looking at Concha rather than Poncho and Cisco? I've seen the beautiful one with the shell shapes on the leather belts. The decorative technique is certainly similar to Navajo work.

  17. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    Thanks again Amber! I'm still looking for one similar. I'll have to look up Navajo star symbols?

    Well I'm having a look into it, Sean. The hexagram is a nest or worms to research: satanic overtones, the Jewish symbolism. I'm into a new line around the Lakota at the moment. There are also references to something called a Koch Fractal. There are two stars there on the buckle. One within the other and those lines linking them all are a bit different too.
    Check this site out:

    It's all pretty "out there" in the weirdest way, mind you!
    I'm really getting into it!
  21. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    Check this out too!
    I went to Vinnies this morning at the top of the street and came back with a Navajo style basket in red black and cream. I had just finished the CW entries and went and had a look at it ten minutes ago!
    Two six sided stars, one inside the other. You would not believe it!

    Are those war drums I hear in the distance? Better circle the wagons...
  23. AmberRose AmberRose, 2 years ago
    Sherriff's badge??
  24. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    There are now three six-pointed stars!
    One for Amber, one for Sean and one for me?
    Howdy, partners!

    THE SIX~POINTED STAR

    THE MARK OF THE BEAST
    by

    Janet Moser

    And he causeth all, both small and great,

    Rich and poor, free and bond,

    To receive a mark on their right hand,

    Or on their forehead.

    And that no man might buy or sell,

    Save that he had the mark,

    Or the name of the beast,

    Or the number of his name.*

    Revelation 13:16,17

    FOREWORD

    And I saw…them that had gotten the victory over the beast,

    And over his image and over his mark…

    This study is dedicated to those overcomers during the Great Tribulation period who, because of their love for the Lord and His Word would will lose their lives rather than take the Mark of the Beast. They will be the true heroes of the Tribulation period, whom God will richly reward.

    …and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which did not do ho

    Hi really I think it may be Argentina! I was just joking about CURSE!! please do not put one on me!! toracat your friend!!!
  27. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    Thanks toracat!
    I'd seen some articles about this as well.
    It does raise some questions. no?
    Objects can be full of latent symbolism.
    Then boom: the 'cat is let out of the bag'.
    Symbols can be cross-cultural and may be limited to a particular tradition as well.
    This is still 'a work in progress' as far as I am concerned.

    I was looking around for Apache baskets and found this image that relates to my belt buckle.

    http://www.bonhams.com/auctions/17103/lot/2359/?page_lots=2

    It's an internal image within what is called a 'tetractys' .
    That shape is called the 'enneagram'.
    Rather than the beast I think it refers to things not Chrristien: astrology,
    It's Pythagorean! It's Masonic! It's Kabbalistic!
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetractys
    By hidden I mean you need to look within the ten points of the triangular tetractys.
    http://omegafoundation.siriuscomputing.net/Spirit/Tetractys.htm
    Then move to the 'enneagram'
    http://omegafoundation.siriuscomputing.net/Psychology/Enneagram.htm
    It's a double mandala. Cross-culture. Gurdjieff.

    Did you see that basket at Bonhams? The same shape. And the basket has animals and figures within those areas. It's weird!
  30. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    Those were major baskets of a dealer and collector Lynn D Trusdell. I had a look at a lot of the amazing jewellery too!
