Navajo Squash Blossom Necklace Earring Set Doris Smallcanyon Silver Turquoise S
Old hand wrought sterling silver and turquoise squash blossom and earring set by Navajo artist Doris Smallcanyon.Necklace is on cable and measures 25 1/2" long. Naja measures 2 1/4" by 2". Blossoms are 1 1/2" total length. The hogans are 6mm in diameter.
Earrings are screwbacks and are 1 1/4" long.
Total weight of the set is 113 grams.
This is a nice set that is not too big and bulky, just the right size.
Silver is tarnished from age and has a lovely gunmetal patina. I have not polished it to preserve the patina.
I purchased this from the original owner who bought it in the 1970's.
It is signed on the back with an electric engraver.
