Marvelous Vintage Native American Silver Spider & Fly Hair Pin / Ornament

Marvelous vintage Navajo Native American hair ornament in the fanciful form of a spiderweb with a spider and a fly. I love this ingenuous depiction of the classic spider-and-fly confrontation and admire the artist for his/her ability to create a presentation that's charming and whimsical without being childlike. The handmade web is beautifully formed from five strands of silver wire on a six-spoke wheel, the spider at the center has a turquoise cabochon head with silver granule eyes and the fly has a stamped design on its wings and is perched just beyond the reach of the spider's pincers. The tines are nicely modeled and the metals test positive for sterling silver. In excellent vintage condition, measures 4 5/16-inchges long, the top measures 2-inches wide and the ornament weighs 14.3 grams.

Item ID: F-331
