Up for Auction...... This Absolutely Fine Big Vintage Native American Signed Zuni Indian Handmade & Hand Tooled 925 Sterling Silver & Genuine Natural Hand Carved & Shaped Turquoise, Coral, Mother of Pearl and Black Jet SIDE-by-SIDE Inlaid Pendant.... I use the term SIDE-by-SIDE because the inlay work is right next to each other which is a lot harder to create rather than the Channel inlay where all the inlay pieces have a piece of silver separating them..... The pendant measures: 1 1/2" tall with chain bale x 1 1/8" widest... The chain loop opening measures: 1/4" in diameter.... It is signed " FLY Charlie Zuni ".... It is also hallmarked " Zuni " and guaranteed to be and has been tested as 100% " Sterling Silver .925 ".... The chain piece in the photos, does not go with the pendant..... This pendant came from an old Collection of Native American Indian Jewelry from an Old Indian Trading Post / Pawn Shop in Santa Fe, New Mexico that Shut down many years ago, this pendant and the many other items that were in the Old inventory of this Trading Post / Pawn Shop were put away after this Trading Post / Pawn Shop shut down and then they were passed on to the son when the owner of this Old Indian Trading Post / Pawn Shop passes away, then he had them put away for many many more years, I will be listing these Great Rare finds on our eBay site, exact age unknown.

PLEASE NOTE:::... Natural Turquoises, Shells, Gemstones and Coral are very difficult to photograph to Perfect Life Like, because the lights can penetrate somewhat into them and the different types of lights used can create many different slight color tones and hues of them in the photos, so I cannot and will not try to say an exact color of the item being sold because, the cameras, bright lights, backgrounds, foregrounds and computer monitors and moving the item around to photograph it can also distort the actual Life Like color tones and hues, and it may be the color your seeing on your computer monitor when you get it or it may be a lighter or darker color, tone or hue when you get it from what your seeing on your computer monitor, also the angle of which your looking at a computer monitor can also change the color, color tones and hues of an items color your looking at, Thanks.

Just a little about our experience in this field of Native American Jewelry. We have lived and worked in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Utah and Colorado, I used to work in the turquoise and copper mines in Arizona for 12 years Tunneling in Texas 10 years, Mining in Colorado 15 years and have been around turquoise jewelry over 45 years, so it is not something new to me or my wife, although we don't know it all, we do have a great understanding about it and collecting it, and have an extensive Rare Library of the old collectors books and unpublished magazines and manuscripts on the subject which helps us learn and understand more each day. Although we live in Alabama right now, we still travel to the southwestern states scouring North, South, East and West of each state, up and down the old untraveled back roads no one else does, finding forgotten mine sites and rare minerals and have a great reputation with some of the oldest Indian trading posts in the southwest and with the Individual Native Americans them selves, so you may know you are buying from a very experienced collector of Native American Indian Jewelry, which you can see by the unusual and unique items we bring to ebay, and have done so for over 18 years now, longer than most of the sellers selling Native American New Jewelry now, and we sell Turquoise Jewelry necklaces, rings bolos belt buckles, bracelets, and, Kachinas, Pottery, Rugs, Blankets, Art Work and more, if you have any questions, or looking for that special piece to fulfill your collection, please feel free to email us and let us know.
