Fancy Vintage Zuni Petit Point Squash Blossom 1940s
OUR NEW PIECE is an ELEGANT AND FANCY Petit-Point BLUE GEM TURQUOISE SQUASH of a VERY RARE DESIGN from the 1940s. These days Blue Gem itself is getting pretty rare but for many years it was supplied to C.G. Wallace and Zuni artists by Lee Hand. The maker of this piece is unidentified but I’m diligently working to uncover this mystery. The trader I purchased it from who has been in business for about 50 years told me in all his years he’d only seen one other like it! I have NEVER seen another like it! CONSEQUENTLY, I HAD TO BUY IT!! This particular necklace was originally purchased many decades ago in Santa Fe by a Texan family and later sold. It seems it has come full circle and good thing too. Look how amazing!!!!
The Blossoms on this Unique piece Measure 2 inches long. The Amazing Naja is 3 inches by 2 1/2 Inches. The Sterling Silver Beads measure 7.4 mm. The entire necklace is 153 mm.
