Spectacular Zuni needle point cluster sterling and turquoise bracelet

Wow! This is one of the best examples of Zuni fine work I have seen. This is a museum quality piece . It has 180 very fine turquoise stones that measure 1/8" by less than 1/16" on the wide end. The stones are all original and appear to be Sleeping Beauty set in very fine saw-tooth bezel. I would estimate this to be c. 1940's, is unsigned (for personal use?), and tests sterling. It has what appears to be a pawn mark with clear polish over it-can be removed. Patina is untouched and age appropriate. The center cluster is a large 3 1/4" in diameter. The side wings measure 2 1/2" by 1/2". Cuff is 8" including 1 1/8" opening. It could stand very minor careful adjustment-but be aware this is a large bracelet.Weight is 2.73 ozt (54.6g). Don't miss out-bracelets this fine don"t turn up that often. Markings on back can be removed before shipping. I'll try to get more pics on if I can.
