Vintage Sterling Silver Zuni Snake Eye Turquoise Pendant /Brooch - image 1 of 9

For your consideration is a fabulous vintage sterling silver Zuni snake eye turquoise pendant/ brooch.

Highly collectible mid century Zuni hand crafted sterling silver and Sleeping Beauty 'snake eye' turquoise features a truly distinctive design with star flower pendant brooch pin, with two stamped 925 hallmarks at back.
Snake eye is a technique of setting very small spherical pieces of turquoise. These techniques began with Zuni artists around 1930-1940. This is an early Zuni piece. And after decades of producing coveted matrix free sky blue turquoise, the Sleeping Beauty turquoise mine closed in 2012, and there is no more, adding to this being a highly collectible antique piece.

All stones are present . The pin back is secure. The pendant brooch measures 1-1/4”x 1-1/4”, weigh: 4.76grams.

This is a vintage, previously owned brooch. Therefore, light wear can be expected. There is no visible damage.

Thanks for viewing!
