Vintage Native American Navajo Story Pottery 12KGF Gold Silver Bead Necklace Set
A vintage Navajo Sterling Silver and 12KGF squash blossom style story necklace that depicts a Southwestern Pottery scene.(Earrings included) The hand carved pots on each concho are beautifully made of gold and silver. It features handmade 7-8 mm sterling bench beads, and five oval, domed medallions or conchos that depict native pottery, clouds and cactus. The largest, central concho is 2 inches tall and 1 1/2 inches across, the four smaller ones are 1 1/2 inches by 1 inch. The beaded foxtail chain becomes a double strand behind each of the medallions. It is signed "W T" "Sterling". I was not able to identify the artist, the style dates the necklace to the 1980's. The necklace is in beautiful condition. It weighs 77 grams and is approximately 20 inches in length with a hook clasp. It is a lovely statement piece. Please refer to the pictures for additional information on condition.
