A lovely Native American sterling pin set with genuine turquoise in a rich blue-green color.
The small cabs are teardrop in shape and set in sawtooth edge bezels.
The center is a flower form made of twisted heavy wire with a solid silver bead center. Each petal has a teardrop turquoise cab with the point facing the center bead.
The flower is framed with a circle of the same twisted wire, a second frame of teardrop turquoise with a solid silver bead at the tip creates the final border.
Very well made, all the settings and wire work are soldered onto a solid sheet of silver and pierced with a saw to create the open areas. The edges are carefully filed to make smooth lines with a nicely finished look.
Excellent condition with no damage or visible wear.
Measures 1.25" in diameter and weighs 11.1 grams.
Unmarked for silver content, the pin tested sterling with acid, it is signed with the initial H.
A fine example of vintage Native American Zuni sterling and turquoise petit-point.
