Vintage Native American turquoise and sterling silver pin has a superb piece of turquoise as its central focus. The vibrant turquoise central cabochonhas exceptional natural color and measures approximately 7/8 x 1/2". The pin measures approximately 1-3/8 x 7/8" and has a safety closure. The bezel is beautifully crafted with scalloped edges, a rope twist design and raised beading. This pin came from an estate and it is in Excellent Condition, but the only mark on the piece is "STERLING" and the quality craftsmanship and heft of the piece, which weighs 9.8 grams, are the only clues to its origin although its style and workmanship suggest that it could be an early Fred Harvey style dating from the 1930s to the 1950s. We put this one aside as we thought it was an unusually special piece of turquoise and a very well executed brooch. We think you will agree when you see it as our picture only tells part of the story!
