Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1970 or so
ITEM: A cuff bracelet in the Zuni manner, the front featuring faces with inlaid semi-precious stone - white mother of pearl, black onyx, turquoise and red coral. This is an early bracelet and the inlay shows all manner of indications that the stones are natural - pock marks, striations and hairlines.
CONDITION: Very nice overall. I don't think the piece is damaged in any way - I think it is just old.
METAL CONTENT: Sterling Silver
HALLMARKS: No silver marks - metal was acid tested for content. There is, however, a stipple pen engraved mark on the inside of the cuff - either a 9 or a G.
SIZE: Inner width is 2-1/4"; height from underside of top to back of gap is 1-5/8". Gap measures 1-3/8". Width, north/south, of the top is 1-1/4". I have a size 7 wrist and I cannot even get the piece on so I think a size 6 is about right. Please note - silver is of a substantial thickness so there is no bend/conformity to the wrist in this cuff.
WEIGHT: A hefty 47.2 grams.
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready for a new home.
