|David Taliman, Cochiti, "Stamped Silver Concho Belt" circa 1950's $2500|
David Taliman was a student of Fred Peshlakai, circa 1920, then worked in several shops in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, including Maisel's and Harold Gans' Southwest Indian Arts and Crafts prior to World War II. He married Anacita Naranjo, a Santa Clara woman, who was the sister of the silversmith for Kohlberg's in Denver, Manuel Naranjo.
The stamping on this concho belt is similar to that of a box in the collection of the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian pictured along with Taliman's photo on p.169 of the Native American Curio Trade in New Mexico by Jonathan Batkin.
