Important 1920s Ingot Hand Constructed, Stamped, Chiselled 3 Turquoise Bracelet
A fabulous and very rare hand crafted early century Navajo bracelet of exceptional quality and beauty, dating to the 1920s with three natural turquoise stones, stamped elements on the sides and terminals and gorgeous chisel work and carving on the sides and terminals, too. This is hand constructed of ingot and the design work is exceptionally gorgeous early work. One of the stamps looks like a bird track around the edges.

There are three turquoise stones, the center being roughly round in shape, and the two side stones more or less oval in shape, each plain bezel set each. This extraordinary bracelet measures about 3/4" wide at the terminals, and tapers toward the center area which is about 1/2". The bracelet measures about 5-3/8" end to end internal length and the gap about 1-3/16" for a total of about 1-9/16 in wrist diameter, and the weight 48.7grams. The silver has a nice thick heavy feel and seems to be coin at.

The beauty of the work on this is compelling and wonderful. Of course, being a very old piece, it is unsigned and not marked for silver content. Pieces of this age almost never would be signed, but the quality of the work is museum worthy and fabulously satisfying to wear. Condition is excellent vintage, wearable and collectible. You can't do better than this for your collection.
