Perry Shorty Silver Repousse Cross Pin with Turquoise
This silver repousse cross pin set with 5 natural turquoise stones is by traditional Navajo silversmith Perry Shorty, who is known for his precision renditions of old-style jewelry. This piece is all about symmetry and balance.
It belonged to Santa Fe dealer, scholar and collector Martha Hopkins Struever, who sold plenty of Perry Shorty pieces in her lifetime and saw something enough greatness in this pin that she held on to it.
It measures 2 1/8" long and is hallmarked on the reverse.
