Hamlet Hovsepian, a collector of Armenian art and other unique samples, wrote on his Facebook page: “The beautiful work of the Van Armenian silversmith of the late 19th century, the largest of the zones available in the collection. The belt depicts “Mother Armenia”, the Echmiadzin Cathedral, as well as the famous Churches of Vaspurakan -Varagavank, Narekavank, Snt. Grigor and  Karmravor. The master also left the inscriptions “Van” on his wrist, written in Armenian “MP” and the “Van” written in Arabic with Ottoman letters. “
