Vintage Navajo Dead Pawn Sterling Silver & Turquoise Squash Blossom Necklace S

Vintage Navajo Dead Pawn Sterling Silver & Turquoise Squash Blossom Necklace

This is an outstanding 1950's Navajo piece that is unsigned. When they are unsigned I really can't tell you who made it or the tribal affiliation. 

It is set with 17 turquoise stones that are natural and beautiful. I have been told that this turquoise is old Bisbee Mine turquoise. I cannot prove it though. 

The hogans (bench beads ) are hand soldered and the old style with the holes punched out by  

hand before they were soldered. Hogans are 8 mm in diameter. 

Necklace is 32" long. That is Indian length. The naja is 3 1/2" in both directions. 

This is dead pawn, heavy and well made.

Weighs 299 grams. 

Acid tested of course and it is sterling silver
