Native American Silver & Turquoise Bug PinNative American Silver & Turquoise Bug PinNative American Silver & Turquoise Bug PinNative American Silver & Turquoise Bug PinNative American Silver & Turquoise Bug PinNative American Silver & Turquoise Bug Pin

This whimsical little bug pin in sterling (tested but not marked)silver and turquoise is Native American in origin; it is signed on the back with etched initials "ROE" and "K." The bug looks somewhat like a ladybug with niello dots and lines on its back suggestive of that beetle. The head is a bezel-set turquoise stone in a beautiful shade of greenish-blue. This is not a production piece but is clearly an original, hand-wrought creation. It is older, ca. 1940-1960. It is in excellent original condition. It measures 1 7/16" X 1" and weighs 3.7 grams.
