Native American Zuni Thunderbird Pendant with Chain - image 1 of 5

Vintage Zuni piece of wearable art, with multicolored gemstones Thunderbird sterling pendant and chain. It is a channel inlaid sterling peyote bird pendant inlaid with coral, turquoise, mother-of-pearl, and onyx. The Stones are skillfully placed in sterling silver compartments complete to the edges, requiring no filler, a result of precise skilled attention to detail. This is a great example of Zuni design and silversmithing at its finest! With beautiful dark green turquoise complemented by black onyx and deep red spiny oyster shell, the stones pop against the slight patina of the metal! The pendant is 1 1/2 inch long by 1 1/4 inches wide; the chain hangs 16 inches from the bale. This is a vintage piece likely dating to the1950s. It is in very good condition with no issues beyond light and ordinary signs of use and wear which include small surface scratches to the silver. The pendant is unmarked but tests as sterling silver.
