Long Zuni Animal Fetish Necklace
Vintage Zuni single strand animal fetish necklace with 16 animals. Strung with brown heishi on original string. Animals are of serpentine, turquoise and malachite. Note that in one of the animal positions, there is no animal but instead two turquoise nugget beads. This is the hallmark of the artist. Unfortunately,. I do not know the name of this artist. But, know that this was done on purpose as a hallmark.
Animal eyes are drilled and not inlay set. No missing animals. I can find no chips.
Clasp is sterling silver. Measures 30" long. Weight: 39 grams.
