Gorgeous 835 Silver Zuni Petite Point Snake Eye Turquoise Brooch - image 1 of 9

For your consideration is a fabulous vintage sterling silver Zuni snake eye turquoise brooch.
Highly collectible mid century Zuni hand crafted 835 silver and Sleeping Beauty 'snake eye' turquoise features a truly distinctive design with lip shape brooch pin.
Snake eye is a technique of setting very small spherical pieces of turquoise. These techniques began with Zuni artists around 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 2” inches width by 1-1/8” inches tall, weigh: 7.87grams..
Signed 1tP.
This piece is really stunning and elegant just too cool .
It is in very good vintage condition with aged patina.
Just great and ready for wear!

Thanks for viewing!
