1920's Navajo or Pueblo Row Bracelet With Natural Turquoise
This 1920's Navajo or Pueblo row bracelet is so good! Set with 5 hand cut natural turquoise stones that have changed color over time, the piece has history and character. There are both greens and blues in the row of fine turquoise stones. The silver band switches from a flat front decorated with silver beads to carinated sides decorated with stamping.
With an interesting provenance, the rare bracelet comes from a New Orleans heirloom collection. The piece was acquired by a man, who traveled to the Southwest from New Orleans for work in the early 20th century, and during his time there acquired a very small group of Navajo and Pueblo jewelry. The jewelry has been much-loved and passed down through generations of his family. The original collectors granddaughter is now an older woman without any children and would like for this jewelry to go to a new home, where it will be cherished as much as it was originally. It is unusual for an early piece like this to come with a strong provenance and to be available for the first-time ever after its original acquisition long ago.
The bracelet measures 5 3/4" inside with a 7/8" gap (we can have it opened it you need a larger gap). The width is 1/2" wide, so it's perfect for stacking.
