Fabulous massive Native American bracelet, fine sterling silver (tested) with high relief ornate silverwork designs of leaves, ropes, snake shapes, etc surrounding three turquoise nuggets and two coral large branch pieces. The coral may be natural color, hard to tell as all these stones are set in deep well formed bezels. The center turquoise is a lovely nugget, stabilized with black matrix, probably blackened by the artist as was the norm. The two side turquoise stones are stabilized or possibly altered, hard to tell on these as well. This bracelet measures 2" wide at the center front tapering to 1 and 1/4" at the ends. When laid flat it measures 2 and 5/8" across on the inside. It is in very good condition, and is signed with an incised BP, we have not found this exact shape signature so far to identify the artist. This bracelet was part of the collection of a man in his nineties, we acquired the bracelets that he had worn most of his adult life.
