Here's a dead pawn, vintage, turquoise, coral and sterling silver bracelet that would make a great addition to your jewelry collection.
Please see the pictures displayed above as they will describe this old bracelet better than any words that we may choose.
Here are some details:
The bracelet measures 5+1/4" long (on the inside), plus there's a gap of 1+1/4". It weighs a very comfortable 17.4 grams and it's 1+1/4" tall at the front.
The back is stamped sterling and has the artist's hallmark. We haven't been able to determine the artist's name but if it looks familiar
to you we would appreciate any help you can send our way.
Pawn traders are limited by State law regarding what information they are allowed give out. However we were told that the bracelet was handmade by a local Navajo artist, most likely during the 1960's or 1970's.
Despite it's age this wonderful old beauty is still in remarkably good condition. It can use some cleaning but we'll leave that for it's next owner. Our policy is that we don't clean vintage jewelry as most collectors prefer to receive these older items in "as is" condition.
NOTE: Please pay attention to the "shadow box" style that the artist used in making the bracelet. It's very typical of Navajo jewelry made during the mid 1900's.
