This is a well designed vintage American South Western sterling silver pendant of heavy Italy sterling snake chain necklace. The front face of the pendant has stylized patterns of lines, steps and curls cut out and then solid backed. Design on this pendant is that of the Native American "Hopi" Pueblo tribe. The reverse side is plain, and there is an ample bail on top. The pendant is unmarked but tests as sterling silver. This pendant is probably American Indian made but without marks cannot be identified. The necklace chain is marked 925 and Italy.
The total weight is 42.55 gr. The chain is 16" long and almost .25" wide. The pendant measures 2.125" x 1.375".
