This whimsical Native American pin is in the form of a beetle. The pin is unmarked but tests sterling. Engraved lines on the body of the beetle are enhanced with niello work. The legs an antennae are twisted silver wire. There is a teardrop-shaped piece of turquoise, bezel-set, that forms the head. This is an older piece, as it is obviously hand-wrought; it is one-of-a-kind, not mass produced like contemporary Native American pins. Hammer-marks and other signs of hand work are visible on the back. This pin is ca. 1940-1960. It is in excellent original condition. It measures 1 3/4" X 1" and weighs 4.7 grams. It has a safety catch.
Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: silver, turquoise, Size: 1 3/4" X 1'"
