Vintage Coral Squash Blossom Necklace and Earrings
Incredibly classic Zuni natural coral squash blossom necklace and earrings from the 1950's. This perfect specimen of meticulous Zuni craftsmanship features a large 3 3/4" circular Naja with all sixty original coral teardrops and dots surrounded by twelve original blossoms set with over one hundred and twenty perfectly cut deep orange red natural coral teardrops flanked by hundreds of perfect silver raindrops and set with small truncated heavy silver blossoms giving this piece its lovely classic look. Tested for sterling silver. Measuring 25" in length and strung with hundreds of bench made silver beads strung on soldered early braided wire with a handmade hook and eye clasp. One of the handsomest squash blossoms I've seen due to its simplicity, restraint and fine craftsmanship. Included are the original matching earrings. Weight of necklace is 165.7 grams. The earrings weigh 13.1 grams and are 2 1/8" long.
