This beautifully carved Pendant features an ethereal face with an Eagle headdress above.
The Pendant is carved from bone (as seen by the irregular colored striations verso). The frame and bale are sterling silver (tested) and the stone is a Cabochon cut and set Garnet.
I have owned this lovely piece for more than 30 years and always believed it to be Native American in origin..but as that is not an area of my expertise..I am listing as origin unknown. Perhaps someone can enlighten me.
The measurement is 1 3/4" x 3/4" (excluding the silver bale), the Vintage condition is very good and it would look stunning on a fine leather cord.
